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."

Well, let me strectch this... how is this related to celebrity gossip? Well the good Mayor (who cheated on his wife while Mayor) is often seen at celebrity events like the Oscars, Grammy's, Laker Games sitting courtside (where tickets sell for over $3,500.00 per seat & game). The seats to the events are given to the Mayor. That agaist city policy. The Lakers play at Staples Center which is owned by AEG. Micheal Jackson funeral was held at Staples Center. The city was in a uproar of the cost of the Jackson funeral. They wanted AEG or the family to pay the city back, our mayor Tony was out of town. When Tony got back to town he said the City would eat the cost of the funeral letting AEG off the hook. AEG is responsible for picking up costs of some of the Mayor's tickets. (Oh yeah, the mayor pretends he had official business at these events even though it has been proven false).

These comments are no exaggeration, the guy really is an awful, awful mayor who hasn't done jack for the city of LA. He doesn't deserve to die because of it, but I wouldn't be opposed to a little tarring and feathering.
