Federal officials say that Muncie, Indiana, Mayor Dennis Tyler has been arrested, CNN reports.
Mayor Tyler was arrested at his home in Muncie on Monday morning by federal agents. A press conference is expected this afternoon to formally announce charges against him.
The mayor’s administration has been under investigation for several years in the federal corruption probe. Former building commissioner Craig Nichols, an official under Tyler, was charged in 2017 for wire fraud, money laundering and theft.
Tyler decided not to run for reelection earlier this month.
