According to BBC, Mayor of Chiapas, Mexico was tied to a pick-up truck and dragged on the road by angry townspeople.
Jorge Luis Escandón Hernández, a mayor in Southern Mexico, was rescued by the police and reportedly suffered no major injuries. 11 people have been arrested in Las Margaritas, a municipality in the Chiapas state of Mexico.
A CCTV footage has been leaked and shows the locals forcibly dragging Hernández on the roads.

After Hernández failed to fulfill his campaign promise, he was attacked twice by the protesting farmers. His office was trashed four months ago when he was attacked for the first time.
It took dozens of municipal police officers to stop the vehicle and rescue the mayor. Several locals were injured in the tussle between the set of farmers and the police.
