iHEARTMEDIA Active Rock WMMS/CLEVELAND afternoon "ALAN COX SHOW" sidekick and comedian BILL SQUIRE was arrested SUNDAY (10/17) after a dispute at a haunted house event at the OHIO STATE REFORMATORY in MANSFIELD, OH; he has pleaded no contest and placed into a 6-month diversion program that may clear the charges and his record, reports CLEVELAND.COM.
SQUIRE was arrested early SUNDAY at the "Paranormal Penitentiary" event after getting involved in a dispute with employees there when his cellphone battery ran out, making his e-tickets for the event inaccessible; he allegedly cursed at the employees and police and was arrested for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest after being pepper-sprayed.
He pleaded no contest in MANSFIELD Municipal Court on MONDAY and was placed in the diversion program with random drug tests; if he passes, the charges will be dropped. SQUIRE told CLEVELAND.COM that "rather than try and say it wasn't my fault or that the police overreacted, I'm just going to say I messed up, take responsibility for my actions and just try and move on."
