Sports Commentator Avoids Criminal Charges

Sep 9, 2010  •  Post A Comment

An ESPN sports commentator who was arrested in a domestic violence dispute last month will not be charged in the case, reports mediabistro.com.

Jay Mariotti was suspended by AOL Fancast.com and has not appeared on ESPN’s "Around the Horn" since the incident with his partner in Venice Beach, Calif., on Aug. 21.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has decided not to pursue the case against Mariotti, the article says.

  1. Whether you like Mariotti or not. And I am not a fan. Is it really fair to destroy someone’s career when there are really no terrible details beyond an argument? And no legal charges filed. He isn’t popular and a lot of people took the opportunity to drag him through the mud. But in the end it appears that it may have been nothing more than a loud and rude argument.

  2. Jeez. Leave the guy alone.
    It’s not like he cut off her head.
    Chill.

  3. I just signed up to your blogs rss feed. Will you post more on this subject?
