Jay Mariotti arrested in Los Angeles and charged with a felony. Wow, that is a line we wouldn’t expect to hear about one of the most vocal guys around who makes a living as an ESPN analyst and sportswriter, trash-talking athletes who have ruined or interrupted their careers with trips behind bars.
According to sources, a sheriff department spokesperson verified that Mariotti, 51 years old, was arrested early Saturday after being involved in some sort of a “domestic incident.” With bond said to be set at $50,000, it will be interesting the details surrounding this incident.
Mariotti who resides in L.A. is an analyst for “Around the Horn”, a high-energy, aggressively opinionated ESPN show. In addition to making trips on the show slamming teams, GMs and athletes coast-to-coast, he also runs a sports column for AOL Fanhouse.com.
Mariotti becomes the newest member of our Jocks Behind Bars and in fairness to all the athletes who have felt the wrath of Jay and websites like ours, we will update this article and be posting the Jay Mariotti mug shot if and when that becomes available.
