Mulberry, Florida - The attack allegedly happened on a peaceful street in Mulberry early Friday morning inside the home of Mayor Julian Mullis. It's a home he shares with his two kids and 29-year-old Eugene Ornelas.
Mullis told police that he and Ornelas are in a relationship and live together as a family unit.
Things got heated, though, when Ornelas brought a stranger home from a club at five in the morning. Steve Peacock is the Interim Chief of Police in Mulberry and says, "It was Mr. Ornelas, who I guess lost his cool somehow, and began throwing articles inside the residence and attempted to strike Mr. Mullis at one point but missed."
Mullis told police that Ornelas swung at him and has Jeckel and Hyde type episodes.
Ornelas was arrested and charged with domestic violence. It's not the first time he's been in trouble with the law. He's faced a DUI, possession of a controlled substance and battery charge in the past.
On his Twitter page, Ornelas writes about watching the kids and cleaning the kitchen while he waits for Julian and he also makes an appeal for his Twitter friends to vote for him by providing a link to Rupaul's Drag Race casting page.
Rupaul's Drag Race is a reality show to pick the most talented drag artist. On the website are pictures that show Ornelas dressed as a woman under the stage name Chyna. Also posted are links to his performances on YouTube. Click here to watch one of the videos.
Reaction from people who live in Mulberry is mixed. Nancy Ladner says, "I don't have a problem with homosexuality. I don't. Everybody has their thing they have to do. But, he is a public image in our town and he needs to keep it quiet."
A.J. Neloms says, "It might be a moral issue and an ethical issue. It can affect how people view him in the next election or whatever the case may be."
Heidi Strickland says, "They need to concentrate on the problems of Mulberry, not the problem of Mr. Mullis and his family, okay? They're going to have to deal with that. Just like you have to deal with your family and I have to deal with my family. But, as long as he's performing his job to the means that he's supposed to be doing which, so far I haven't seen any disagreements, then that should be the issue."
On Tuesday, 10 Connects tried to speak with the mayor but he didn't return our phone call and was not at City Hall. No one answered the door at his home.
The mayor and his kids were not hurt.
Hell hath no fury like a...um....oh.....nevermind.
Pardon me while I barf.
It’s really great that this guy has decided that his kids need to be exposed to this. Drugs, DUI, living with homos, it’s a hate-crime if you say anything against it.
Heidi Strickland sounds just a wee bit defensive, eh?
Jeckel? Is that anything like the famous Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? Love that editing and fact checking.
Heckel and Jekel were fun, too!
Poor kids, maybe the courts should give custody back to their mother(s).
More from the the perverted world of “gays”.
This is a little different than the mayor of Mayberry, no?
Heckel and Jeckel, Jekyll and Hyde ... six of one, a half dozen of the other. It's a man in a dress. Think there might be issues there?
“Heckel and Jekel were fun, too!”

Mr. Badcock knows Mulberry forwards ...and of course backwards.
I have family thats lives in Mulberry...not the first time the good folks have had to put up with wierd people. Ask them about the local funeral director.....ewwwwwwww
I watched one of Chyna’s performances on YouTube. Five words, Chyna: Don’t quit your day job.
More from the the insane world of gays.
But, but, but homosexuals are all fun-loving and nice and funny and self-deprecating and stuff...you know, like on all the sitcoms!
