Peraica Contests Weekend Arrest as Opponent Trick, No Treat

By Chuck Sudo in News on Nov 1, 2010 1:10PM

Cook County Commissioner Tony Peraica has scheduled a 1 p.m. press conference at Daley Plaza to address his weekend arrest in suburban McCook for allegedly tearing down campaign signs of his opponent in tomorrow's election, McCook Mayor Jeffrey Tobolski.

Since the arrest was made public, Peraica has taken to his preferred social medium to argue that the charges were falsely concocted by Tobolski and McCook officials. Whether that's true or another case of Peraica crying wolf is up for debate. Peraica has yet to answer questions as to why he was in McCook on the night he was arrested. Peraica also plans on suing the town.

Maybe he just should have TP-ed Tobolski's house instead.
