    Alderman Danny Solis was threatened on Saturday.

    Someone sure rained on Ald. Danny Solis's parade.

    A man is accused of threatening Solis as he walked in the Mexican Independence Day parade in Pilsen on Saturday.

    Just before 1 p.m., Gregory Santos allegedly ran up to 25th-Ward alderman as the parade passed Santos's home on 18th Street, reports the Chicago Tribune.

    The 42-year-old Santos screamed, "You're a sellout!" according to police. "I'm going to kill you."

    In Chicago, voters are encouraged to communicate with their representatives, but this isn't the method we'd recommend.

    Santos was arrested and charged with one felony count of threatening a public official.
