Former WVKS/TOLEDO morning show host ANDREW "Z" ZEPEDA was arrested WEDNESDAY (4/13) by PERRYSBURG, OH police on a warrant from DEFIANCE MUNICIPAL COURT, charging him with failure to appear in court there, reports THE TOLEDO BLADE. He didn't show up at an APRIL 8th arraignment on two first-degree misdemeanor charges of failure to permit tax commissioners to examine books, records, and papers to determine payroll, and failure to withhold or pay tax from employees of a restaurant he ran for a brief time in DEFIANCE, OH.
ZEPEDA was arrested at his home, then taken to the WOOD COUNTY JAIL. He posted a $2,000 bond in DEFIANCE MUNICIPAL COURT and was released from jail.
In FEBRUARY, ZEPEDA pleaded guilty to failure to remit sales tax, theft, and complicity to breaking and entering, but WOOD COUNTY Common Pleas Judge ALAN MAYBERRY granted his motion for intervention in lieu of conviction. Mr. ZEPEDA was then ordered to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation and treatment, repay more than $40,000 in back sales tax to the state, and meet other requirements.
