WATAUGA -- After spending several hours in the Watauga Jail on Tuesday for refusing to get rid of a political sign, a supporter of Republican gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina's was out campaigning at another site in Fort Worth late Tuesday.
Christopher Howe, 29, of Fort Worth was arrested about 11 a.m. outside the Watauga Community Center, a polling place. Police said he violated an ordinance that prohibits campaign signs on city property.
Howe posted bail Tuesday afternoon to get out of jail but faces a $150 fine and court costs for the misdemeanor offense, said Detective Jason Babcock, a police spokesman.
