Bra Thief Arrested

Posted at 7:20 AM

Bras Across the Bridge - now hanging higher

A Merrill man was arrested early yesterday morning after he was caught stealing bras from the Bras Across the Bridge display over the South Center Avenue Bridge.

40 year old Christopher Tveten was taken into custody after a brief chase just after 1 a.m. Tuesday. Once stopped, police discovered approximately 80 bras in his and around his car, as some of the bras were still connected to the string that held them over the bridge.

Tveten faces a charge of disorderly conduct. Organizers of the event chose not to press charges. He’s currently free on $1,000 signature bond and will be back in court on August 30th.

The bras have since been strung higher, out of reach using cable.
