The Level Plains Mayor and a councilman were arrested on misdemeanor charges.
Mayor Tim Jackson says he believes the charges are part of a witch hunt.
The mayor was back at his office in Level Plains Town Hall Thursday.
Twenty-four hours earlier, he along with Councilman Joe Bruer were arrested on several misdemeanor charges.
It stems from a September 30th traffic stop by a city policeman in which Bruer's son was in the car.
They are each charged with obstruction of a governmental operation and resisting arrest.
Bruer also faces a disorderly conduct charge.
Mayor Tim Jackson said “the whole thing is a publicity stunt...they've been trying to remove me, and can't. I’ve vowed to serve four years in this office, I have three left…. I don't know what they'll be going to do.
It’ll eventually be up to the town's municipal court to decide the legal fate of the two elected officials.
