Jay Mariotti Arrested on Charges of Domestic Violence

Jay Mariotti annoys viewers of ESPN's Around the Horn on a daily basis.

But the sports journalist is now in trouble for far more than inane ramblings and unfunny jokes.

Mariotti was arrested early this morning in Los Angeles on a felony charge of domestic violence, reports the L.A. County Sheriff's Department website. The arrest took place at 4:30 a.m.

A former write for The Chicago Sun-Times, Mariotti was released after posting $50,000 bail. In 2004, he got into a fight with a White Sox announcer who claimed Mariotti was a "fraud" for never entering the club house of the team he covered.
