Jay Mariotti: Hours after the ESPN talking head was charged with seven misdemeanors stemming from his August arrest, Jay Mariotti’s attorney told the LA Times: “The allegations are inaccurate and sensationalized. We are confident that the facts will show that the complainant was extremely intoxicated that night and abusive toward Mr. Mariotti.” Horrible move. The first words out of Mariotti’s camp are that the female was “extremely intoxicated … and abusive?” Guess this means the two broke up, which is bad news for Mariotti because it means she’ll probably cooperate with authorities.
