According to docs obtained by TMZ, Daniel John Molnar called the Mayor's Office last Thursday and said, "The Mayor knows who I am.  The Mayor is talking a lot of s**t.  You tell him that I'm going to take him out."

We're told the Mayor's Office used caller ID to find the 46-year-old Molnar, who lives in the mid-Wilshire area of L.A.  He was arrested 3 hours later and charged with making criminal threats.

We're told the L.A. County District Attorney decided today it would reject the criminal case, on grounds of insufficient evidence.  As a result, Molnar was released.

The L.A. City Attorney's Office got a restraining order today on the Mayor's behalf, which orders Molnar to stay 100 yards away from the Mayor's home and City Hall.  He's also prohibited from engaging in any communication with the Mayor or his staff.

In his his declaration, the Mayor wrote, "I believe the threats uttered by Daniel John Molnar to be credible, and am concerned for the safety of the employees of my Office, myself and my family when Daniel John Molnar is near."

Idiot!    

How is it that they can't prosecute due to "lack of evidence"? *69 is a legally acceptable means of tracking a call back to it's source; it places the source of the call at Molnar's phone. If no one else has access to his phone and/or the person in the Mayor's office he spoke with voice ID's him, you've got the link from the person making the call at his home to the mayor's office. That should be enough to prosecute him bigtime...

I don't want this guy dead but I do want him out of office. If you do too then go to recallcityhall.org and sign the petition to get him out of office. If you don't live in L.A. be thankful your mayor isn't this guy

Local right winger radio shows here in LA spends a great deal of time going after this Democratic Mayor. I truly believe that the radio hosts are inciting vicious and unnecessary hate towards Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. They are stirring up right wing freaks and unbalanced listeners.

He is a sorry ass mayor. He needs to worry about his own state being bankrupt and how to fix they're problems instead of trying to tell AZ what to do.

Sounds nice how this works for some people. We had some problems years ago and had callerid of the perps. The phone company told us the callerid information wasn't reliable enough a source for them to do anything with. Nobody gave it much thought then but now we all know how caller id can be spoofed.



We didn't call the cops, but we're told by the phone company the caller id wasn't enough to do anything with and the phone records would have to be pulled after we paid them to do the pulling.

This Mayor is a drama Queen, some of you know what I mean! He is a crook. The Department of Water and Power recently got caught telling lies to the public in order to impose hefty water bill fees. Tony is their best friend.
