Peraica (repuke) accused of damaging rival's campaign signs
By Hal Dardick and Caroline Kyungae Smith, Tribune reporters

Just three days before the Nov. 2 election, Cook County Commissioner Tony Peraica was arrested Saturday on misdemeanor vandalism charges in west suburban McCook, where his re-election opponent is the mayor.

The two-term Republican was arrested Saturday night in the village of about 250 people and charged with criminal damage to property for allegedly destroying a campaign sign of his Democratic challenger, Mayor Jeff Tobolski, according to McCook police Chief Frank Wolfe.

Peraica said Sunday that he had been out investigating the destruction of his own signs when he was followed and harassed. He denied the charges, which he said were trumped up.


"The facts are the facts," Wolfe said. "When you break the law, you break the law."
