Florida Mayor Arrested Just Weeks After Taking Over for Florida Mayor Who was Arrested

A second mayor has been arrested in Port Richey, Florida, 20 days after taking over for the previous mayor, who had been arrested.

Terrence Rowe, 64, was arrested on charges of obstruction of justice, conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice and use of a two-way communication device to facilitate the commission of a crime. This was the second time in 20 days that a mayor had been arrested in the Florida town, the first being Dale Massad, 68, who is accused of firing at a Pasco sheriff’s SWAT team that was arresting him on allegations that he was practicing medicine without a license.

Rowe was acting mayor after Governor DeSantis suspended Massad from office. Authorities say that Rowe’s arrest is an off-shoot of Massad’s arrest, but did not elaborate.

  1. Shooting at a S.W.A.T. team? Why is that a crime? The militarized police are not even qualified to pretend to be Seal Team 6. Too bad he didn’t arrest them.

  2. They sent a SWAT team to arrest a mayor for practicing medicine without a license? Thats like swatting flies with a MACK truck.
    I’m thinking that who ever is in charge of that SWAT team, needs to be looked at.
