Hosts Behaving Badly

WTKS's Blackbean Gets Fine, Probation For Punching Rival

What's wrong with active competition?

The battery case against CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WTKS (REAL RADIO 104.1)/ORLANDO "MONSTERS IN THE MORNING" sidekick CARLOS "BLACKBEAN" NAVARRO for punching crosstown CBS Alternative WOCL (O-ROCK 105.9) morning man (and former WTKS host) DREW GARABO at an appearance has resulted in no jail time but a fine and probation.

The ORLANDO SENTINEL's SCOTT MAXWELL reports that NAVARRO pleaded no contest to the charge stemming from the MARCH 17 incident and escaped jail time or a formal conviction, instead receiving the status of "adjudication withheld" with three years' supervised probation, a $2,000 fine, orders to stay away from GARABO and alcohol, and 200 hours of community service.
