Being mean to the mayor of Peoria, Ill. on the interwebs can apparently get you #arrested.
Sometime in late February or early March, somebody launched @peoriamayor — a parody Twitter account designed to skewer the city’s mayor, Jim Ardis, the Peoria Journal Star reported.
Based on the tweets it sent out — which are now unavailable, as the account is suspended — the Twitter account painted Mayor Ardis as being really into marijuana, crack and prostitutes — basically a Peoria version of Toronto’s Rob Ford.
