We woke up today to some crazy breaking news out of Port Richey with Mayor Dale Massad getting arrested for practicing medicine without a license. The story got even crazier when we learned he’s accused of firing shots at the deputies that were trying to take him into custody.

This wasn’t Massan’s first brush with the law. This past summer he was arrested on a domestic battery charge. His quote after getting released is pretty ironic given today’s events: “The main thing I learned from the jail is I don’t want to go back.”

Video from this interview can be found on the ABC Action News website here.
