Scott Savol “once arrested for felony domestic violence;” paid fine, got probation.
American Idol 4 finalist Scott Savol “was once arrested for felony domestic violence after roughing up his infant son’s mother during a Valentine’s Day fracas,” The Smoking Gun reported today. In 2001, Scott “Savol shoved [his baby’s mother Michelle] Martin, pulled a phone from her hand, and then threw it at Martin, striking her in the chest.” He’d already “grabbed the woman’s hand and pulled an engagement ring off her finger and ‘stated he was also going to take their son,'” according to a police report. He “eventually took a plea to a reduced misdemeanor disorderly conduct rap and was fined $500, placed on a year’s probation, ordered to complete a domestic violence or anger management program, and sentenced to a suspended 20-day jail term.” Additionally, the site reports that “Savol’s rap sheet also includes a ‘no contest’ plea to a 1995 misdemeanor trespass charge.” The Smoking Gun has his super-hot mug shot, plus all of the documents.
