SAN GABRIEL -- The mayor of San Gabriel was arrested early Friday morning on charges of felony robbery and assault charges after he allegedly grabbed a woman's purse and sped away with her clinging to the side of his SUV.
Albert Y.M. Huang, 35, was taken into custody around 1:15 a.m. after police received a call about a heated argument between Huang and a 33 year old woman over money, according to Sgt. Jeff Whitney of the San Gabriel police department.
Detectives say Huang and the woman were arguing over money outside a restaurant in the 300 block of West Valley Boulevard.
The unidentified woman says Huang grabbed her purse, which contained her car keys, cash and personal items, and got into her car. She reached into the vehicle through a window and tried to prevent Huang from leaving, Whitney said.
Huang allegedly pushed the woman, got out of her car and into his own SUV with the woman standing on the vehicle's running boards, Whitney added.
She then hung onto the vehicle's mirror while Huang drove a quarter of a mile down a residential street at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour, police say. A security guard saw the incident and managed to get Huang to stop his vehicle. He detained Huang until police arrived. The woman was not hurt.

Must be fighting over who’s going to pay for dinner!
No mention of party affiliation.
If he was a Republican, the first words of the article would be “Republican Mayor ...”
But since the party is not mentioned, we conclude - he’s a Dem.
The media is just soo-oo-ooo predictable.
Democrat? I presume the woman is a Buddhist monk or a prostitute.
