A Brazilian court said Tuesday that an arrest order was issued against Google Brazil’s president over his refusal to remove YouTube videos that “slander” a mayoral candidate.

Electoral authorities in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul said Fabio Jose Silva Coelho committed the crime of “disobedience” by not pulling two videos that “slander, insult and defame” Campo Grande candidate Alcides Bernal.
