iHEARTMEDIA syndicated air personalityand WIHT (HOT 99.5)/WASHINGTON morning man KANE (real name: PETER DEIBLER) was arrested last FRIDAY after his soon-to-be ex-wife accused him of second-degree assault, the WASHINGTON POST reports. The couple are in the midst of a bitter divorce, which is being publicized by KANE on his show, and his wife, NATASHA DEIBLER, on her personal blog.
Earlier today, MONTGOMERY COUNTY DISTRICT Judge WILLIAM SIMMONS issued a temporary protective order related to the alleged assault, which took place on MAY 25th. Mrs. DEIBLER claims that her husband grabbed her and threw her into a wall in the presence of the couple’s daughters, resulting in a sprained knee, head injury, bruises and a black eye. KANE later told the POST that the accusation in "unfounded." Nevertheleless, the temporary order bars him from contacting his wife or entering the home where she lives.
DEIBLER attended the 14-minute hearing MONDAY morning, and wasn't heard live on-air as he was on a preplanned vacation this week. He did tweet pictures of himself inside an elevator, where he claimed to be stuck and unable to get to work. Both tweets appeared to have been deleted after the POST contacted DEIBLER for comment.
A station source confirmed to ALL ACCESS that KANE is currently on vacation and that affiliate stations are running "best of" programming in the mornings.
