Michael Scott booked for misdemeanor domestic assault
Omaha Police arrested Scott Thursday afternoon. He's accused of assaulting his girlfriend last weekend.
The woman claims that Scott attacked her after she said she did not like the movie they just watched at a theatre. After arriving at their apartment, the woman claims that Scott pushed her, hit her in the face and tried to strangle her.
The woman claims Scott said that “It’s time for you to die like O.J.”, referring to the O.J. and Nicole Brown Simpson case. Scott left, but returned later. The woman says Scott put her in a headlock and claims that he ripped off two of her fake fingernails.
The woman went to police Saturday afternoon to report the incident.
Scott has had a varied career. He's been a news anchor twice in Omaha, at KMTV and KETV, stints in LA, Texas, Charlotte and Huntsville, a reporter for Entertainment Tonight, and an unsuccessful candidate for the House of Representives in 1998.
Scott was also the unwitting star of a classic YouTube viral video:
