Mexico Mayor Tied To Truck, Dragged Through Streets Amid Reported Anger Over Unf by lezan(m): 6:24pm On Oct 09, 2019
Eleven people were arrested in southern Mexico on Tuesday after the mayor of their village was dragged out of his office, beaten, and then tied to a pickup truck and dragged through the streets of the town, according to officials.
The State's Attorney General's Office in Tuxtla Gutiérre said in a news release that the incident happened early Tuesday in the town of Las Margaritas, when a group of people stormed Mayor Jorge Luis Escandón Hernández's office and caused damage to real estate, in addition to assaulting him.
The angry group of farmers was demanding the mayor build a road he promised to construct during his campaign, Mexican news outlet Excelsior reported.

This was the second attack this year by locals demanding the mayor fulfill his campaign promise to build the road, according to the BBC. Four months ago, a group of men trashed his office when he was not found there.
