Authorities say it appears Michigan City mayor Ron Meer lied in his allegations following

the recent arrest of his stepson.

But...the mayor's attorney says the evidence police SAY they have lacks total credibility.

Meer alleged his stepson was targeted based on what a confidential informant told him at his


According to court documents.......police say the informant denied telling that to

the mayor.

But...the mayor's attorney Scott King says it's very possible any confidential informant is

going to tell the police exactly what they want to hear....to avoid potential heat from the cops.....

He says it's just another tool for trying to cost Meer the election....

To substantiate their claims....police say a check of the informant's cell phone showed no

evidence of a phone call.

Again...King says the mayor did not mention any phone call......just that the informant came to

his house with the information.
