Polk County deputies said they arrested 59-year-old Maurice Nelson Campbell on Tuesday. Investigators said the victim had known the vice mayor for years, but Campbell repeatedly harassed her, and accused her of having an intimate relationship with her husband.
On February 8, detectives with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said the victim received three phone calls from a number belonging to Campbell’s husband. They said she didn’t answer the first two, which occurred at 4:46 p.m. and 7:13 p.m. The third call came in at 11:55 p.m., and the victim answered.
Detectives said she recognized the voice on the other end as Campbell, so she hung up. Four minutes later, the victim received three additional phone calls. Then two more from Campbell’s phone at 12:49 a.m. Officials said she didn’t pick up the phone.
The victim turned off her phone for the rest of the night, detectives said. When she woke up, she found three more missed calls from Campbell’s phone, and three voicemails from her, officials said, which occurred in the early morning hours of February 9.
The voicemail messages were released by deputies on Tuesday. They included profanities and a threat to physically harm the victim. In one message, the caller said, "And this is Maurice Campbell, and I approve that (expletive) message, and you can believe that." In another excerpt, Campbell said, "I'll beat your (expletive) (expletive) down, you trifling (expletive), stinking (expletive) (expletive). You rotten (expletive), you rotten (expletive)!"
According to Campbell’s arrest affidavit, the victim contacted law enforcement officials about the harassment in the past, but didn’t pursue criminal charges after Campbell stopped. However, she felt this threat was credible, detectives said, and the consistent harassment caused her “undue stress and anxiety.”
“She believes that the vice mayor uses her position on the Fort Meade City Commission to intimidate her,” according to a statement by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
Campbell was arrested on the aggravated stalking charge.
Polk County detectives said Campbell’s past arrests include an aggravated assault charge in Jacksonville, a shoplifting charge in Orlando, and a failure to appear in court within Orange County.
"The victim has put up with this harassment for quite some time, and she finally reached a breaking point,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in a statement. “This is not proper behavior for anyone, let alone an elected official. Leaving the voicemails, especially one that sounded like the end of a campaign commercial, wasn't good judgement either."
Kelly, 52, faces 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to the Cook County State's Attorney's Office in Chicago.
A judge issued a warrant for the singer's arrest on Friday afternoon.
The indictment released on Friday listed four victims, at least three of whom were under 17 at the time they were allegedly victimized by Kelly. They were identified only by initials in the court papers.
The alleged sex acts occurred between May 1998 and January 2010, prosecutors said.
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx read Kelly's indictment during a brief news conference but left without answering any questions.
A bond hearing for Kelly is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, and his arraignment is set for March 8.
He faces up to three to seven years in prison for each charge if convicted.
Requests for comment to Kelly's Chicago-based lawyer were not returned.
Kelly, whose real name is Robert Kelly, has been criminally accused of sexual misconduct before. He was tried on child pornography charges in 2008. A jury cleared him on all counts.
But allegations of sexual misconduct against the singer gained renewed attention this year with the airing of a Lifetime docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" in early January.
The six-part show contains interviews with numerous women who accuse Kelly of mental, physical and sexual abuse. Sony Music parted ways with the Grammy-winning artist in the wake of "Surviving."
The singer and his lawyers have consistently denied any wrongdoing in previous allegations made against him over the years.
KENNETH CITY — Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested an 18-year-old Dixie Hollins High School student about 11:24 p.m. Feb. 19 for reportedly threatening to shoot up the school.
Deputies say an administrator at the school, 4940 62nd St. N. in Kenneth City, found out about the verbal threats made by Isaac Abraham Myers of Clearwater about 8:30 p.m. Feb. 19.
The administrator was told that Myers had made a statement about “shooting up the school,” if he did not win one of the senior superlative awards. When he didn’t win an award, he then reportedly said, “don’t come to school tomorrow (Feb. 20).”
Deputies were notified of the threats. They went to Myers’ home about 9:55 p.m. Deputies say Myers admitted to making the statements to a friend, but said he had done so in a joking manner. Myers told deputies he had made the statements verbally and sent text messages to his friend using the Facebook messenger app.
Myers told deputies he did not have access to guns, which was confirmed by his parents. He also reportedly told deputies that he would “never do such an act and never intended to hurt anyone.”
Myers allowed the deputies to look at the texts on Facebook Messenger from Feb. 11. Deputies say Myers texted, “I hate everything and im gonna shoot up our school… Everything is wrong…And i wanna hurt someone for it…So im finna shoot up the school… Nothing I just hate everything and want everyone to know it.”
Deputies arrested Myers and transported him to the county jail where he was charged with one count of threatening communications or threats of mass shooting. Bail was set at $10,000. He was released on surety bond Feb. 20.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. -- The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is searching for a pregnant woman accused of spending tens of thousands of dollars using a fraudulent credit card.

Port Richey, Fla. (FOX 13) - Shots were fired at law enforcement officers as they were trying to serve a search warrant, investigators said.
State officials and SWAT members with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office arrived at the Port Richey home, located at 8221 Hayward Lane, around 4:40 a.m. Thursday. Officials with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said the mayor, 68-year-old Dale Glen Massad, had his medical license revoked in 1992. However, they said, he was still practicing medicine inside his home.
One medical procedure performed required additional hospital treatment from the patient, investigators said.
When officials arrived at the home, they “announced their presence” and attempted to enter the residence. That’s when bullets flew toward the SWAT members. Deputies said they did not return fire. There were no injuries and Massad was taken into custody. It's unclear if he was the shooter.
It's not the first time Massad was arrested. In August 2018, Massad was arrested on a domestic battery charge.
Additional information is expected to be provided by Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco during an 11:30 a.m. press conference.
