It is shown that if a classical solution $(u, n)$ of the modified Euler-Poisson equation (mEP) in one space dimension is such that $u$, $u_x$ and $n$ are initially decaying exponentially and for some later time the first component $u$ is also decaying exponentially, then $n$ must be identically equal to zero and $u$ must be a solution to the Burgers equation. In particular, if $n$ and $u$ are initially compactly supported then $n$ can not be compactly supported at any later time, unless $n$ is identically equal to zero and $u$ is a solution to the Burgers equation. It is also shown that the mEP equations are locally well-posed in $H^s \times H^{s-1}$ for $s>5/2$.
