Reports Stating Rush Limbaugh Was Arrested Are Inaccurate; Limbaugh's Attorney Holds Press Conference at 8:00 pm Tonight
Friday April 28, 7:55 pm ET
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- A spokesman for Rush Limbaugh said some news reports that state Mr. Limbaugh was arrested are inaccurate.
Separately, Rush Limbaugh's attorney, Roy Black will hold a press conference at 8:00 pm this evening at the Marriott Hotel at 1001 Okeechobbee Road in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Mr. Black will discuss the agreement reached today with the State Attorney's Office whereby a single count charge of doctor shopping that was filed today by the State Attorney will be dismissed in 18 months.
As previously announced, a primary condition of the dismissal, Mr. Limbaugh must continue to seek treatment from the doctor he has seen for the past two and one half years. This is the same doctor under whose care Mr. Limbaugh has remained free of his addiction without relapse.
Mr. Black stated, "Mr. Limbaugh and I have maintained from the start that there was no doctor shopping, and we continue to hold this position. Accordingly, we filed today with the Court a plea of 'Not Guilty' to the charge filed by the State.
"As part of this agreement, Mr. Limbaugh also has agreed to make a $30,000 payment to the State of Florida to defray the public cost of the investigation. The agreement also provides that he must refrain from violating the law during the 18 month period, must pay $30 per month for the cost of "supervision" and comply with other similar provisions of the agreement.
"Mr. Limbaugh had intended to remain in treatment. Thus, we believe the outcome for him personally will be much as if he had fought the charge and won," he said.Contacts: Sitrick And Company (310) 788-2850 (212) 573-6100 Mike Sitrick Tony Knight Tammy Taylor Anne George
Drive By Media wrong again....
The media screwed up again ?
Wow ... What a shocker
Hopefully they have it straightened out by Greta time. :)
I'm sure the media will refuse to apologize, because of the truthiness of the matter.
the prosecutor probably leaked to the media and gave them the talking points to use
I'm sure Rush will drive them nuts monday playing back all the audio of them getting the story wrong.
Please let this be on DUmmie FUnnies.
God bless Rush.....hope he fares well
Sounds like they were wishing it to be true so much that they believed it must have happened just because they wanted it to.
It's amazing how their mistakes always seem to go against conservatives. Go figure!
Dittos, Rush is a great guy, and I thank god for him!
Yes, I'm sure they have been giddy. But, once again, they are the fools and Rush will have an even larger audience come Monday.
Jerks just wanted it to be true.
Leftists are such hypocrites. They'd be screaming bloody murder if a DemocRAT were required to reimburse any level of government for to cost of an investigation. This is just an incentive for prosecutors to harass innocent people with the threat of financial ruin. Sure $30,000 is pocket change for Rush, but most people couldn't afford it. I think the money ought to come out of the local city budget.
Accurately fake...truly false.
8PM Pacific daylight?
