According to the LAT, KCRW host Chris Douridas
was arrested last week outside a Santa Monica bar for attempting to drug and kidnap a fourteen-year old girl.
Douridas, 43, was arrested shortly after midnight Jan. 6, said Lt. Frank Fabrega of the Santa Monica Police Department. Witnesses, who reported seeing Douridas put a substance into the victim’s drink and carry her out of the Circle Bar on Main Street, flagged down police, Fabrega said. A man, identified by authorities only as in his 30s, was arrested as a possible accomplice to Douridas.
The unidentified girl, who became ill, was taken to a hospital, where she was treated and released, Fabrega said. It was unclear how the girl got into the bar.
Douridas, a Pacific Palisades resident, was released by police after posting $1-million bail.
KCRW is reportedly standing by Douridas, who has been released on bail and will continue to host ‘New Ground’ on Saturday.
