The DALLAS MORNING NEWS is reporting more details about RUSS MARTIN's arrest, detailing the complaint that led to the CBS Talk KLLI (LIVE 105.3)/DALLAS host's arrest last FRIDAY.
According to the paper, the complaint was filed by MARTIN's 27-year-old fiancée, who told police that MARTIN became irate when she told him in a phone call that she had failed to follow up with an IRS agent about a package delivery, telling her that the IRS was trying to "take his house and everything he owned." She told police in an affidavit that he came home and screamed, destroyed furniture, pushed and kicked her, pulled hair out of her head, and paced around the kitchen with a Glock. Police reported that the woman had red spots on her head where hair had been ripped out, and an abrasion behind her right ear and said she had a bruise on her thigh from a kick. SOUTHLAKE Judge CAROL MONTGOMERY has issued a protective order for 61 days against MARTIN, preventing him from approaching the complainant, and has also suspended MARTIN's concealed handgun license.
MARTIN's attorney TIM POWERS would not comment on the allegations but said, "RUSS is a great person. He’s a very resilient person. Obviously, when someone is arrested for a second-degree felony, it’s serious." MARTIN was expected to return to the air on TUESDAY, but the station aired another "best of" in his place.
