MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (WNDU) – Michigan City Mayor Ron Meer has bonded out of the La Porte County Jail after a judge issued an arrest warrant.

According to The Michigan City News-Dispatch, Meer turned himself in Wednesday evening and immediately bonded out after being processed at the jail.

The warrant for Ron Meer's arrest was issued Wednesday, according to online court documents.

Meer was charged with six felony counts of intimidation and official misconduct and two misdemeanors for false informing "resulting in substantial hindrance to law enforcement" on Oct. 30.

Shortly after Meer's stepson was arrested on drug charges in October, he claimed the case was politically motivated.

The police chief and two assistant chiefs then resigned their posts, claiming Meer ordered them to pull city officers out of the La Porte County Drug Task Force.

Meer went on to lose in the general election by a thin margin.
