San Gabriel Mayor Albert Huang, charged with assault and robbery, told World Journal that the incident that got him arrested was entirely a personal dispute between him and his female friend. He claimed that the reason he took the her purse was that he needed to get the car key in it. Huang denied the female to be his lover but admitted that they had been in a romantic relationship in the past.
