Influential Noncommercial KCRW/SANTA MONICA personality CHRIS DOURIDAS was arrested JANUARY 6 on suspicion of drugging and kidnapping a 14 year old girl.
The LOS ANGELES TIMES reports that police are waiting for toxicology reports before deciding whether to press charges against DOURIDAS, who currently hosts a weekend show, "NEW GROUND," on the station and is well-known for his work on movie soundtracks and on iTUNES. DOURIDAS, accused of putting a substance in the girl's drink and carrying her out of SANTA MONICA's CIRCLE BAR, posted $1 million bail and will continue on the air at KCRW, whose Assistant GM JENNIFER FERRO told the TIMES "We believe in CHRIS as a person, and we think he has strong character. And we also think people are innocent until proven guilty."
