Florida Oxycodone News – Aggravated Assault Charge Dropped After Man On Oxycodone Recants

Pain Pills

A Florida man who accused his son of aggravated assault with a crossbow recanted his statement and said he made it up while under the influence of the pain pill Oxycodone. Salman Mirisha, a 55-year-old resident of South Pasadena, said he took the incorrect amount of the prescription pain killer and then made up the story because he was upset at his 19-year-old son.

Massimo Mirisha was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly pointing an unloaded crossbow at his father from about six feet away. The assault charges were dropped in March but the story surfaced today on the St. Petersburg Times web site. Since the false allegations the elder Mirisha says his son has been unable to find work and he says it is due to his Oxycodone-fueled allegation.

Salman Mirisha claimed that his son didn’t have any knowledge of where the crossbow was hidden so it would be impossible for him to threaten the father with said weapon. That led Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney’s to drop the charges despite the fact deputies reported the alleged assault.

The father was prescribed the pain pills following sinus surgery. The pain pills may have never been prescribed had the surgeons not broken Salman Mirisha’s eye bone accidentally during the sinus surgery. He claims he had no idea how much Oxycodone to take and has no idea why he would accuse his son who he later described as a “wonderful boy”.

The incident stems back to January 31 when Massimo Mirisha was originally arrested on the assault charges. Without his father’s statement and his claim of false accusations based on drug use, it would have been nearly impossible for the State’s attorney to proceed with the case and get any sort of conviction.
