San Antonio TV Sportscaster Arrested

Oh, c’mon he’s sports guy. How do you expect him to behave. I wonder if KENS-TV covered this story?

SAN ANTONIO -- KENS-TV sportscaster Joe Reinagel was arrested and charged Monday with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

According to a police report, Reinagel showed up at a hospital Sunday night to see his wife, Dia Joy Reinagel, who had complained of chest pains shortly after she was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

The report stated that a police officer said that Joe Reinagel had red eyes and smelled of alcohol.
The officer also stated in his report that while Joe Reinagel was visiting with his wife, the officer could hear the sportscaster using profanity to refer to him. The officer then pulled Reinagel from the room and tried to calm him down when Reinagel allegedly used more profanity -- this time to the officer's face.

"He, in fact, was intoxicated himself," San Antonio police spokesman Gabe Trevino said. "He was very aggressive as the officer tried to speak with him. It was a situation where he was yelling at the arresting officer in the wating room."

Reinagel was then arrested. He appeared before a magistrate and was released on his own recognizance. He is scheduled to appear in court March 8.

"It's stupidity," Reinagel said about his arrest after he was released.

After being released from the hospital, Dia Joy Reinagel will be charged with drunken driving and resisting arrest, Trevino said.

Dia Joy Reinagel, a self-employed publicist, was stopped by police for allegedly driving 86 mph in a 65 mph speed zone on Loop 1604 near Babcock Road.

Trial Of Ex-Radio Reporter Delayed Until Fall

At least they don't have the death penalty in Massachusetts

The Kansas City Star reports that the trial of former Missouri radio reporter James Keown, who is accused of killing his wife by spiking her Gatorade with antifreeze, will take place in Massachusetts this November.

Keown, 32, is currently being held without bail, and if the trial does start in November he will have spent nearly two years in jail. An autopsy found that Keown’s wife had been poisoned with a chemical found in antifreeze. Keown was arrested in 2005 at the Jefferson City, Missouri, radio station where he worked and was taken to Massachusetts to face a first-degree murder charge in the September 2004 death of Julie Keown, 31.

Radio talk show host pleads guilty to money laundering

"... my whole defense will be based on the truth ... every good story sounds true until the other side is told."

Walter "Eddie" Floyd, a Reno businessman and radio talk show host, pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to charges related to his involvement in a cross-country marijuana trafficking and money laundering operation.

In U.S. District Court, Floyd, 59, pleaded guilty to one count of money laundering and aiding and abetting. He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine. A March 30 sentencing hearing has been scheduled. He remains free on $100,000 bail.

Floyd initially pleaded not guilty to 21 counts of drug trafficking and money laundering following a February indictment. On Friday, he admitted to laundering $175,000 through his local businesses. The money came from a Northern California marijuana operation, he admitted.
In September, Floyd had claimed his severe depression was in such a "precarious state" that his psychiatrist guessed he would suffer a nervous breakdown and become incompetent to stand trial, according to court documents.

Floyd's attorney, Scott Edwards, could not be reached for comment on Friday.
During a February interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal, Eddie Floyd insisted he was innocent and said "... my whole defense will be based on the truth ... every good story sounds true until the other side is told."

Floyd had been host of "Nevada Matters" a Monday through Saturday radio talk show on KBDB 1400 AM. At the time the indictment was handed down, he owned U.S. Realty, Combined Associates Development Co. Inc. and was trying to start a retail Web site.
