Ex-Port Richey mayor held without bail; says he didn't mean to shoot at deputies

Former mayor Dale Massad remains held without bail despite arguments in court Friday that there’s no evidence he meant to shoot at deputies who raided his house to arrest him Thursday.

The ruling came during Massad's first appearance on charges including attempted homicide and practicing medicine without a license.

It followed an announcement from the state's chief financial officer that Massad is also under investigation now on suspicion of insurance fraud. And later that day, Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended him from the office of Port Richey mayor.

Massad, 68, was arrested at his home Thursday by agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement but not before he fired twice at deputies who came to assist, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
