Jay Mariotti domestic violence arraignment postponed
Mariotti is charged with domestic violence, domestic violence with injury and one count each of grand theft, false imprisonment and vandalism, said Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney's office.
Mariotti appeared on the ESPN show "Around the Horn" and writes for the sports website Fanhouse.com, where he is known for his outspoken views criticizing athletes for their actions on and off the field. He formerly wrote sports columns for the Denver Post and the Chicago Sun-Times.
The argument continued at the couple's apartment near Venice, where Mariotti allegedly pushed and shoved the woman. During the altercation, Mariotti grabbed her arm, leaving marks, the sources said.
Police were called to the apartment and found his girlfriend, who has not been identified, with cuts and bruises.
