The Delaware County DA’s office has announced that James Schiliro (pictured), the mayor of Marcus Hook, has been arrested.
He is facing multiple criminal charges, including reckless endangerment. Schiliro surrendered to cops early Thursday morning.
Earlier this week, local news reported that the borough council and the Republican Party asked Schiliro to resign following a drunken encounter with a 20-year-old man, which resulted in the discharge of a firearm.
According to court documents, the “white” mayor is accused of having a law enforcement officer pick up a 20-year-old friend in a cop cruiser and bring him to his home. Inside, the mayor served the minor alcohol and asked for homo-sex.
When the man refused, the brokeback mayor told him he was a hostage and fired his gun inside of the home, court documents said.
District Attorney Jack Whelan says the case will likely be transferred to another court for a preliminary hearing because of a conflict of interest.
A neighbor of Schiliro said the accusations are hard to believe. Y’ALL BETTER BELIEVE IT BECAUSE THAT’S HOW HONKS GET DOWN!!
The neighbor says the mayor was known for buying ice cream for all of the neighborhood kids.
