Florida Mayor Arrested 20 Days After Taking Over For Arrested Mayor

Imagine living in a city where your mayor gets arrested so you replace him with another mayor who also gets arrested.

That might sound like something you'd see in Illinois, but this happened in Florida.

Tampa Bay Times reports that Terrence Rowe was arrested on February 21 on charges of using a two-way communication device to facilitate a crime, conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice, and obstruction of justice. He was only mayor for 20 days after taking over for the previous mayor.

Who was that previous mayor and what happened to him?

Well, he is Dale Massad. He was arrested in February for shooting at a SWAT team member.

Wait, why did he shoot at a SWAT team member?

Massad was practicing medicine without a license. CBS News reports that Massad would invite "patients" into his home and give them various treatments. SWAT came to try to arrest him and Massad opened fired. Everyone was very lucky that no one was killed.

Here's hoping that the third time is the charm for Port Richey.
