May 7, 2009 at 5:15 AM (PT)
SHANNON BURKE has landed back in jail after the former CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WTKS (REAL RADIO 104.1)/ORLANDO midday host allegedly violated the terms of his pre-trial bond.
BURKE allegedly gave a friend his house key with instructions to retrieve his motorcycle and some of his other belongings, which constitutes impermissible third-party contact in violation of a protective order requiring BURKE to avoid any contact with his wife CATHY or come within 1,500 feet of his ALTAMONTE SPRINGS home.
BURKE, who was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and animal cruelty in last week's shooting incident that injured his wife and dog, had been free on $15,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court this afternoon.
