Tony Rizzo Mugshot

Rizzo hosts The Really Big Show on ESPN Radio and The Rizzo TV Show in Cleveland. His wife called 911 Friday night claiming after drinking he started to beat her.

A recording of the 911 call indicates that Rizzo’s wife told the dispatcher, “My husband is hurting me, and he’s very irate and I’m really scared.”

The dispatcher then asked, “Hurting you how?”

Mrs. Rizzo responded, “Choking me, hitting my face. I’m locked in the bathroom right now.”

When asked if her husband was drunk, Rizzo’s wife said, “Yes, we’ve been drinking.”

The dispatcher then asked, “What is he doing now?”

Mrs. Rizzo responded, “He was beating on the door, but he left when he heard that I was calling you.”

When asked if there were any weapons in the house, Rizzo’s wife said, “There’s a gun upstairs.”

Rizzo declined to comment on the arrest.
