Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - LOCAL - Tonya Alanez

Royal Palm Beach Mayor Fred­er­ick Pinto has been ar­rested on a mis­de­meanor charge of do­mes­tic bat­tery, court records show.

Palm Beach sher­iff ’s deputies ar­rested Pinto, 67, Mon­day. He was booked into jail at 12:26 p.m.

On­line court records do not iden­tify the al­leged vic­tim.

At Tues­day morn­ing first-ap­pear­ance hear­ing, Pinto was re­leased on his own re­cog­ni­zance and or­dered to have “no vi­o­lent con­tact with [the] vic­tim,” records show.

Pinto’s next court hear­ing is sched­uled for Dec. 11.

First elected to the Royal Palm Beach Coun­cil in 2003, Pinto was elected mayor in March 2016.
