Trouble for a popular voice on Cleveland sports radio. Medina police arrested Tony Rizzo Friday night after a 911 call by his wife.

According to the call and the police report, Rizzo is accused of hitting his wife in the face after the two had been drinking.

The report says Catherine Rizzo locked herself in a bathroom and called police.

In part of the call you can hear a woman say, 'My husband is hurting me and he's very irate and I'm really scared.'

Rizzo was back on the radio Monday morning at WKNR, saying he pleaded not guilty in Medina court.

The station released a statement saying Rizzo is an exemplary employee and his status with WKNR is not affected.
