MONTREAL — Montreal mayor Michael Applebaum was arrested Monday and will be questioned by the Canadian province’s anti-corruption unit later in the day, said a source close to the investigation.

His arrest comes amid a probe into several corruption scandals that have shaken Quebec’s largest city for more than a year and that led the former mayor to resign in November.
