Jay Faces 7 Years in the Clink

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/09/espn-sports-personality-jay-mariotti-charged-with-misdemeanor-domestic-battery.html

Mariotti, known for his unsparing commentary of athletes on ESPN's "Around the Horn," faces seven counts in all in connection with the domestic disturbance call last month at the couple's condominium near the Venice-Santa Monica border, said Frank Mateljian, spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney's office.
Charges include two counts of domestic violence with injury, two counts of domestic violence, one count of grand theft, one count of false imprisonment and one count of vandalism. Each of the counts carries a maximum of a year in jail, meaning he could face up to seven years behind bars.

Hopefully he won't get the same preferential treatment those razza-frazza mollycoddled pro athletes he hates so much get.

Jay does ZERO jail time. Bank that.

He should be jailed simply because his columns are an abomination and if I accidentally hear his voice on ESPN it assaults my ears.

In Jay's defense, she was being a drunk bitch and got physical with him. Naturally he had to do a little domestic violence since he can't fight off a drunk woman.

The one good thing to come out of this is the slight improvement of Around The Horn with his absence.

Any word from Lester Munson or Roger Cossack?
