Police were called to the Fairview Township, PA home Cekot shares with his girlfriend at 9:30 p.m. last night, according to The Patriot-News. When the police arrived, they found Cekot’s girlfriend had injuries on her lip and ear.
The station mentioned Cekot’s arrest briefly on the 5 p.m. newscast this evening, reading a short statement from WHTM management.
“Chris Cekot is accused of a serious crime,” the statement reads. “His guilt or innocence will be determined in court. ABC27 will have no further comment on the matter.”
When asked for comment by the Patriot-News, WHTM news director Dennis Fisher refused to comment on Cekot’s employment status. He has been a reporter at the station since 2007.
