Medina Police arrested sports personality Tony Rizzo, host of The Really Big Show on WKNR (850 AM) daily and The Rizzo Show on WJW Sunday nights for domestic violence Friday.
Rizzo was taken into custody after his wife called from a bathroom in the home to report that her husband had hit her in the face, according to a police report.
Fox8.com reported that Rizzo’s wife said in a call to 911 that her husband was choking her and that she was afraid. Alcohol was involved, according to the report.
Rizzo’s lawyer entered a plea of not guilty to the misdemeanor charge for him Monday morning.
