A week after Peoria Police raided a Peoria residence all because of a fake twitter account impersonating Mayor Jim Ardis, authorities have decided not to file any charges. The decision announced Wednesday comes one day after the issue was brought up at Tuesday night's city council meeting. Police raided a house last Tuesday over the account, claiming false personation of a public official . The mayor said he didn't initiate the investigation but that derogatory content on it warranted one. Some council members believe it may have been blown out of proportion. Peoria County State's Attorney Jerry Brady confirmed Wednesday , after reviewing the case, he will not be charging anyone for allegedly personating a public official due to a more narrow guideline in the statute.
