Judge Ends Protective Order Against Kane

A judge refused to extend a temporary protective order against iHEARTMEDIA syndicated air personality and WIHT (HOT 99.5)/WASHINGTON morning man KANE (real name: PETER DEIBLER), the WASHINGTON POST reports. KANE is currently embroiled in bitter divorce proceedings with NATASHA DEIBLER (NET NEWS, 6/20).
Circuit Court Judge TERRENCE MCGANN ruled that NATASHA DEIBLER hadn’t met the burden of proof needed to keep the order in place.
In court, the two parties offered wildly different versions of a MAY 25th incident that prompted her to seek the order and to file second-degree assault charges against him. NATASHA DEIBLER asserted that her husband threw her against a wall when she arrived at his apartment to pick up the couple’s two children; KANE contended that he used the door to move her back when she attempted to enter without his permission, and that she fell.
After hearing testimony from police officers, a nurse who examined NATASHA, and others, the judge ultimately was persuaded by the fact alleged incident took place when NATASHA tried to enter her estranged husband’s apartment. “I think society could accept that a lot easier — a man can’t barge into a woman’s apartment,” he said. “Well, she can’t barge into his apartment — it has nothing to do with their gender.”
