Macedonia mayor arrested, charged with domestic violence in lovers' quarrel in Florida

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA - Macedonia Mayor Joseph Migliorini was arrested and charged with domestic violence in Florida on April 27, according to a Palm Beach Garden Springs Police report.

The victim described Migliorini to police as her lover. Migliorini told police he was in a long-term relationship with the victim and they lived together.

At a Seasons 52 restaurant entrance, Migliorini grabbed the victim's hair and yanked her back, spinning her around, according to the police report. He then slapped the victim across the right side of the face with his open hand and yelled derogatory expletives and berated her, police said.

Migliorini was supposed to pick up his girlfriend from a business meeting at Seasons 52, and when she told him the meeting was not finished, the incident occurred outside the restaurant in the presence of a witness, guests and employees, according to the report.

Migliorini fled the scene once he learned officials were called, police said.

Migliorini reportedly ran into PGA Marina, where he was then arrested by police.

Macedonia City Council President Nick Molnar tells Cleveland 19 "Council takes these matters very seriously and will evaluate the facts. At this point we are not at liberty to respond until we learn more."

Mayor's Office Executive Assistant Diana L. Augustine says "There is no comment at this time. This appears to be a personal matter, not a business matter."
