The Tribune, Tampa, FL, 5/13/88

Thursday, September 1, 1988

Orlando, Fla., Mayor Bill Frederick was at a restaurant cash register when someone rushed in and said a woman was being assaulted in a car outside. Frederick and another patron rushed to her rescue, pulling the man off the woman and out of the car. The assailant came up swinging a long screwdriver he had allegedly used to assault his estranged wife, and then fled. Mayor Frederick retrieved a police-issued handgun from his city car, jumped in another good samaritan's truck and pursued. The man came to bay when the mayor fired a warning shot in the air. Police charged the man with aggravated battery and attempted murder.
