What, no impeachment?

I'm quite surprised the police could just go in and arrest a city's mayor. Surely they would have to wait for the aldermen to impeach him first? Maybe this time, the mayor really was involved in criminal activity, but next time, the police could just arrest a mayor on false charges because they didn't like his politics. The police have to be kept strictly subordinate to the elected representatives of the people.
