Executive summary: Syndicated talk radio host

In 2003, Los Angeles talk radio host Leykis revealed the name of Kobe Bryant's rape accuser (Katelyn Kristine Faber) on his nationally-syndicated show. (He had previously identified the accusers against Marv Albert and Mary Kay Letourneau.) Shortly thereafter, The Smoking Gun posted Leykis's decade-old arrest report for domestic violence. According to the Boston PD incident report filed that night:

The victim states that on 12/22/93 at approx 1:00 AM while in bed with the suspect, who is [REDACTED], the suspect and victim had an argument. As a rebuttal [to] this argument the suspect threw a glass at the victim striking her in the head. The suspect then pushed the victim's head into a brick fireplace located in the bedroom. The victim stated that at the time the suspect grabbed her and threatened to kill her. The officers observed scratch marks on the victim's left forearm. The officers also felt a large bump on the victim's head. The victim was advised of her rights under 209A. The victim refused medical attention at this time. The suspect was placed under arrest and transported to Area A-1.

Apparently, Leykis was diverted to a domestic violence offender's program and the charges were dropped after he successfully completed the program.
