CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WTKS (REAL RADIO 104.1)/ORLANDO midday host SHANNON BURKE is being held without bail after an incident on THURSDAY evening at his ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FL home in which he shot a bullet that went through his dog's leg and grazed his wife in the head.
The ORLANDO SENTINEL reports that BURKE told police that he was angry at the dog and was waving a gun he thought was not loaded when it went off, sending a bullet through the dog's leg and ricocheting, grazing CATHERINE BURKE in the head. BURKE is being held on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and animal cruelty: both his wife and the dog were taken for treatment of their injuries.
