WCAU anchor-reporter Dray Clark has been arrested and charged in a domestic-related assault on Friday.
According to the station, the 41-year-old got into an altercation with a woman, described as his girlfriend, outside his house on Thursday night. The woman told police they got into an argument that escalated. He struck her several times and choked her. The woman said she later agreed to go into his house because her son was inside. There the argument escalated again and he choked her.
The police report on Friday showed Clark had been arrested the previous weekend in Delaware on similar charges.
NBC10 issued this statement: “Station management learned today that Dray Clark was arrested on both domestic violence related cases. We take these allegations very seriously. Effective immediately, Dray will be off the air pending the station’s investigation.”
Clark is being held on $20,000 bond.
