Video: Mayor Tied To Truck, Dragged On Road He Failed To Fix

Residents of Las Margaritas, Mexico, dragged the mayor of their village, Jorge Luis Escandon Hernandez, out his office, tied him to a pick-up truck and dragged him on a road he failed to fix.

Reports say the residents, who are farmers, argued that the move was to force Escandon to fulfill his campaign promise; the second time he is being forced to do so.

Police were said to have intervened and freed him, though he did not suffer any major injury.
