ESPN personality Jay Mariotti, he is a panelist for the show Around the Horn, was arrested today in Los Angeles where he currently resides. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department he was arrested on a domestic violence charge which is a felony.

That is all we know about Jay’s current legal troubles but in terms of a biography for him this is what we got. He was a sports columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times for over 17 years. During his time with the paper was known for his public battles with other staff members, team owners, coaches and of course other sports columnists. Calling Mariotti controversial is probably an understatement but I think that is the best way to describe him. Especially since he said his left the paper because newspapers are on life support which may be true but oh so classless.

The Pittsburgh born Mariotti has no problem expressing his opinion on anything sports. He has issues with lots of people including his Around the Horn co-panelist Woody Page which steams from their days at The Denver Post. He other famous feud so to speak is with Bulls and White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf who was always super critical of Jay.

It looks like the actions of Jay Mariotti, an ESPN personality, have finally landed him in some serious trouble. The question now is did he actually do anything this time to get him self in hot water or for once is the controversial columnist innocent? That my friends is something we will have to wait to find out as the latest drama surrounding Mariotti unfolds.
