Port Richey, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-The relationship between Port Richey Mayor Dale Massad and his girlfriend is probably at an end after the two are arrested for battery.
Pasco County deputies say the 68 year-old Massad and 57 year-old Annette Joseph got into a heated argument at their home on Hayward lane. Investigators say the dispute got ugly when Massad grabbed Joseph and shoved her. Joseph is then said to have punched Massad.
Massad is officially charged with domestic battery. Joseph is charged with battery on a person over the age of 65.
Both Mayor Massad and Joseph were transported to the Land O' Lakes jail after deputies were called to their home.
