CBS Talk KLLI (LIVE 105.3)/DALLAS afternoon host RUSS MARTIN was arrested for assault on FRIDAY morning in SOUTHLAKE, TX.
MARTIN was charged with aggravated assault with bodily injuries with a deadly weapon, with the host arrested outside a SOUTHLAKE gym.
MARTIN, who is known for his longstanding support of police officers and firefighters through his "RUSS MARTIN SHOW LISTENERS FOUNDATION," posted $10,000 bail and was released, but the station ran a "best of" show on FRIDAY and MONDAY afternoons. Station GM DAVID HENRY has advised ALL ACCESS that MARTIN will return to the air for TUESDAY's show.
On MONDAY afternoon, SOUTHLAKE police released details that said an unnamed female complainant told police that she and MARTIN had an argument on JULY 14 that led to an assault and the display of a pistol. The woman filed a complaint with police the following day. MARTIN's attorney TIM POWERS said that MARTIN has been advised not to discuss the matter publicly but that he believes MARTIN will be cleared of the charge.
