No Charges To Be Filed In Peoria Fake Twitter Case


The mayor of Peoria is defending the response to a fake Twitter account… including a police raid on the home where the spoof account originated. 

 

Mayor Jim Ardis says he was not involved in the police decision to raid the home, but also says he has a right not to have someone pretending to be him.  The fake account, which included off-color jokes and profanity, was not initially labeled as a parody.  It was eventually shut down by Twitter, even before police raided the home.

 

Authorities now say no one will be charged in the case.
