A Summit County mayor was arrested for allegedly slapping his lover in the face while in Florida in April, according to a Palm Beach Garden police report.

Macedonia mayor Joseph Migliorini, 65, was charged with one count of battery.

The victim made arrangements for Migliorini, who the police report refers to as her "paramour," to pick her up at a restaurant named Seasons 52 after a meeting. According to the report, the mayor called the woman to let her know he arrived at the restaurant and she came outside to let him know her meeting wasn't over.

When she turned to go back into the restaurant, Migliorini allegedly grabbed her by the hair, yanked her bank, spun her around and then slapped her in the face, the report said. Migliorini also allegedly called the woman derogatory names in front of restaurant employees and patrons.

Migliorini fled the area when police were called but was found at a nearby marina and taken into custody. According to court records, the mayor won't face prosecution if he completes 12 hours of anger management, pays a fine and has no further contact with the victim.
