Sculpture Damaged after Drunk Driving Crash

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Police say a man was arrested early Sunday morning on drunken-driving charges after driving a vehicle into the sculpture outside the Arts United Center. The bright red sculpture was created in 1985 to commemorate Fort Wayne’s industrial heritage. Early Sunday morning, it was knocked to the ground and damaged when Colton Adamonis, 23, crashed into it. The sculpture, made of stainless and painted steel, was commissioned in 1983 by Rea Magnet Wire Company to celebrate its 50th anniversary in the Fort. The piece of art is named after 19th century chairman physicist, Hermann von Helmholtz.
