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.
