  • Moore was arrested and charged with battery in October 2012.
  • Two months later, in December 2012, he was booked with a probation violation.
  • Moore was also arrested for battery in 2005, but was not charged, according to the Florida Times-Union.
  • The mayor had three non-moving traffic violations in 2011, with fines totalling $1000.

Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith, who arrested Moore on Monday, explained his action by claiming that the city of Hampton "isn’t Toronto," a reference to crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford.
