Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, March 15, 2019

Democracy, eh? It's all fun and games until your elected mayor allegedly opens fire on the SWAT team come to arrest him, which is precisely what cops accused him of doing in the Floridian city of Port Richey last month. And now the acting mayor has been cuffed too.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that 64-year-old Terrence Rowe was arrested on Wednesday and was charged with obstruction of justice, conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice and use of a two-way communication device to facilitate the commission of a crime. All of which sounds pretty serious for an ageing city official.

Just 20 days earlier, Rowe's boss, Mayor Dale Massad, 68, was arrested on charges of practising medicine without a licence in his home, which is what brought on the SWAT team standoff.
