Radio Personality Tom Martino Arrested For Alleged Domestic Violence

DENVER (CBS4) – Police in Denver arrested radio personality Tom Martino for alleged domestic violence related assault.

It happened Friday night around 11:15 p.m. near Auraria Parkway and Interstate 25.

The victim, a woman, was taken to a hospital.

Martino is a radio talk show host for 630-KHOW.

The 60-year-old filed for bankruptcy in 2011 because of his real estate deals.

Martino also complained to a Denver Post Reporter last March saying, "look, I realize that my fame and fortune makes me a target, especially because I am very good looking too, not to mention my stone cold fox wife. But hey, don't hate me for it."

He later told the reporter he was just kidding.

Police has not released the identity of the woman who was reportedly hospitalized.

Denver police say Martino was released from the Denver city jail, after paying a $600 bond.

In a statement made Sunday Martino said, "Holly and I remain deeply in love and committed to each other and to our family. The incident that happened Friday night was a foolish mistake. We were both drinking too much. We got into an argument that escalated over a struggle for a cell phone. We were both inadvertently injured and we were not trying to hurt each other. My over-reaction was uncalled for. I am ashamed of my behavior. I should've walked away. I also believe alcohol was a major catalyst. We are dealing with our issues through professional Christian spiritual counseling, with mutual love and support. We advise anyone dealing with these struggles to seek help before there is an incident."
