Palm Beach Post TV Critic Arrested
TV writer Kevin Thompson was charged Sunday with simple domestic battery, according to today's Metro briefs. To wit:
"WEST PALM BEACH — Palm Beach Post television critic Kevin Thompson was arrested at his home Sunday afternoon and charged with simple domestic battery. Thompson, 43, was released on his own recognizance. Thompson's wife of 18 years, Sharon, called West Palm Beach police about 2:45 p.m. Sunday and told officers that her estranged husband jumped on her, knocked her onto their bed and started choking her. Kevin Thompson told officers he was not choking her, but trying to calm her down. Sharon Thompson told police the couple is going through a divorce."
UPDATE: Here's the booking thing on the PBSO blotter.
Tough times. Sounds like the critic needs some serious help. Let's just hope the Post shows Thompson a little more decency that it showed John Pacenti.
