Yikes. Voters in Mexico treat a failed campaign promise to repair a road slightly differently than voters in America (thankfully he suffered no major injuries):

From the BBC:
Eleven people have been arrested in southern Mexico after the mayor of their village was dragged out of his office, tied to a pick-up truck and dragged through the streets.
Police intervened to free Mayor Jorge Luis Escandón Hernández, who reportedly suffered no major injuries.
It was the second attack by farmers demanding that he fulfil his campaign promise to repair a local road.
Here’s the moment the mayor was dragged out of his office:

And here’s surveillance footage of him getting dragged by the pickup truck:
