Road Rules’ Donell facing charges for assaulting, battering teenage girlfriend.
Road Rules: South Pacific cast member Donell Langham “was arrested last July for assault and battery after allegedly striking his teenage girlfriend and throwing her to the ground and dragging her several feet,” The Smoking Gun reports. Donell was also arrested after returning from the show for violating a restraining order. In an interview with TSG, “Langham said he told ‘Road Rules’ producers that he had a rap sheet and that, ‘they said nothing.'” Additionally, “he denied assaulting Soper and said she suffered no injuries–despite what the police report says.” Donell is still dating the girl, but tells TSG, “I kinda gotta also be with her to drop the charges. After this is all over I’m done with her.”
