An Indiana man has been arrested on drunken driving charges after police say he ran his vehicle into a huge steel sculpture created to commemorate Fort Wayne's industrial heritage.

The Journal Gazette (http://bit.ly/11IRjbD ) reports the sculpture entitled "Helmholtz" was knocked to the ground and damaged when it was struck early Sunday near the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.

The sculpture made of stainless and painted steel was created by Mark di Suvero in 1985. It was commissioned in 1983 by Rea Magnet Wire Co. to celebrate its 50th anniversary in Fort Wayne.

The sculpture is named after 19th-century German physicist Hermann von Helmholtz.
