Ex-Florida Mayor Arrested For Unlicensed Medical Practice And More
Just when we think that Florida has done everything that they could possibly do, they sink to a new depraved low.
The former mayor of Port Richey, Dale Massad, was arrested back in February for operating an unlicensed medical practice from his home according to the Tampa Bay Times. He had a license previously but lost it back in 1992 over the death of a 3-year-old at his hands. Massad has been charged with practicing without a license and attempted murder after he fired shots at the SWAT team while they attempted to raid his home.
Massad also got hit with a conspiracy charge after jail officials heard him on a call with then acting mayor Terry Rowe plotting to intimidate a police officer involved in the investigation against him.
Oh yeah, associates and a former roommate of Massad’s who was interviewed by police say he was a regular meth user and at one point was smoking crack cocaine every single night all while “practicing medicine”.
Another man who said he had lived with Massad last year, Daniel Tatum, told investigators that the mayor would trade him the hormone testosterone for meth or marijuana, records show.
White and Tatum described watching and receiving medical treatment from Massad inside his Port Richey home, according to court records.
White told investigators he watched Massad on Aug. 24 stitch up a cut on a friend’s leg, records say. Massad injected that person with an anesthetic and sutured his wound on top of the mayor’s kitchen table, White told investigators.
The thought of a crackhead mayor injecting us with anesthetic is horrifying to say the very least.
We hope they lock this guy up forever just off GP.
