All had been quiet (for once) on the Jay Mariotti front since late June, when a California judge ordered him to stand trial on assault, domestic violence, and stalking charges stemming from an incident in which he had allegedly pulled out his ex-girlfriend's hair extensions. And now we know why: Today it was announced…
A California judge ruled yesterday that there was sufficient evidence against former ESPN talker and Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti for a trial on assault, domestic violence, and stalking charges.
"Mariotti allegedly confronted the woman at a restaurant last Sept. 30.... He also is accused of grabbing the woman outside a Venice restaurant around midnight on April 15 of this year, pulling out a chunk of her hair and grabbing her cell phone away as he shouted at her." [BHCourier, h/t tomuban]
