Innocent until proven guilty or until your girlfriend decides not to cooperate with the authorities. Either way Mariotti, has escape one big hurdle.
Here are the details from the Beverly Hills Courier:
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declined today to pursue a criminal case against ESPN sports personality Jay Mariotti, who was arrested last month on suspicion of domestic assault for allegedly roughing up his girlfriend.
The matter was referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, according to Shiara Davila-Morales of the District Attorney’s Office.
A spokesman for the City Attorney’s Office said the potential case had not been turned over yet.
So while Mariotti pops the collar on his leather jacket over this, he isn’t quite out of the woods yet, since the City attorney could still press charges.
I will say this, I am not hypocrite if Mariotti is totally cleared he should get his jobs back even if we know that he has a little Chris Brown in him.
