Ex-husband of Florida mayor arrested on domestic battery charge in Miami Beach

The ex-husband of a Florida mayor has been arrested in Miami Beach on a domestic battery charge.

Kenneth Retzer, the 48-year-old ex-husband of Cape Coral Mayor Marni Sawicki, was arrested early Saturday after a domestic dispute call to Miami Beach police.

A police report said officers found the unidentified victim with a swollen eye and red throat in a room at the Fontainebleau. She told police Retzer hit her.

Retzer, a former Cape Coral Fire Department lieutenant, was treated and released from a local hospital before being jailed.

Sawicki went to a weekend national mayors' convention at the hotel and attended a Friday news conference there. The Miami Herald couldn't reach her for comment Sunday night.
