Zachariah Sindt, who can be seen in a recent series of Youtube videos criticizing Shawano City officials, has been arrested in Shawano on an unrelated warrant.

Sindt was taken into custody Wednesday on a warrant from Saint Croix County. Court records show he is charged with writing worthless checks, and failed to appear for a July hearing. A warrant for his arrest was issued at that time.

Shawano's Mayor Lorna Marquardt tells NewsChannel 7 Sindt was videotaping her home this afternoon before he was arrested.

In the videos posted on Youtube last week, Sindt is seen calling the Mayor a Christian cult leader, and claiming she's using the local police and fire departments to instigate racial genocide.

The Mayor says those claims are shocking and untrue.

The full Youtube videos can be found linked to below.
