How to remove item from static source when selected as tag filters when using AutoComplete

I am using autocomplete and instantsearch

I want to be able to define a fixed list of filters for a single facet. when i click the tag from the source dropdown, the tag does show as a ‘selected tag’ BUT the item remains in the source list which means i can click it over and over and it keeps adding.

how can i remove the item from the source. list when the source list is static. the docs only indicate how to do this for a dynamically fetched source.
