Jonah Keri arrested for domestic violence 

Post#1 » by Schad » Fri Jul 19, 2019 7:51 pm

Well-known sportswriter Jonah Keri was granted bail Friday following an alleged assault on his wife.

Keri faces four charges including three counts of assault causing bodily harm and uttering death threats.

He was detained Thursday after being arrested at the couple’s Montreal-area home.

Keri, 44, was handcuffed and wearing a green sweatshirt when he appeared in court Friday and was granted bail.

As part of his bail conditions he cannot be within 250 metres of his wife or child, cannot carry weapons, and was given ten days to get his possessions out of his home.

He's Canada's preeminent baseball-knower, so this feels like it merits a thread. Always liked Keri, but, well, **** that guy.

Also, if anyone wants to go the "WOMEN LIE ITS ALL MADE UP" route, this is Keri's lawyer:

His lawyer, Louis Morena, said that the couple was obviously in trouble and he attempted to downplay the charges.

"Death threats are sometimes said in a moment of anger especially when there's an emotional situation of divorce and you're seeing your family go down the drain," Morena told reporters.
**** your asterisk.

Bring Zaun back!

The other angle about Kerri is his twitter exchange about Aroldis Chapman.
