Russ Martin = No Contest

Honestly, I thought the guy was gonna walk. I'm shocked he took a plea today.

I mean, "no contest" is a sort of an admission of guilt, right? To me, this smells like Russ and Mandy -  who were reconciled for months - having a very recent falling out and him fearing her "loose cannon" element on the stand.

The result: Martin gets two years' probation, $1,000 fine, battering intervention and no more rough stuff with his fiancee.

The curveball may or not affect his future in Dallas radio.

But it definitely affects my story. After vacation, get me re-write!

Let's shoot for the July 30 cover.
