Late last night, Palm Bay City Councilman Pete Filiberto was arrested by Palm Bay Police on felony drug charges, DUI, and 4 more charges.

The arrest affidavit has not yet been published, however Filiberto’s bond paperwork states that this is his 3rd DUI. However, after further investigation, court records show that Councilman Filiberto changed his name from Frank to Peter. Under his previous name, we found additional DUI charges.
