Famous Reporter Novak Allegedly Runs Old Man Over

July 23, 2008


The pedestrian who was struck by prominent Washington columnist and commentator Robert Novak is in worse shape than first thought, a hospital source tells ABC 7 News.

The victim, a 66-year-old man, is undergoing surgery and was only semi-conscious, the source said.

In an exclusive interview with ABC 7 News, Novak said felt “terrible” about striking a pedestrian Wednesday morning while on his way to work in downtown D.C.

Metropolitan police cited Novak with failure to yield to a pedestrian about 10:07 a.m. at 18th and K streets NW, Novak confirmed to ABC 7 News.

Novak spoke to ABC 7 News as he emerged from a police car at the scene. Novak said he did not know he had struck anyone. Novak said he didn’t know anything was wrong until a bicyclist rode ahead of him and blocked traffic. The bicyclist informed Novak he had hit a pedestrian.

In an interview, the bicyclist told ABC 7’s Suzanne Kennedy the pedestrian was splayed across Novak’s windshield, and there was no way that Novak could not have known he struck someone. The cyclist, David Bono, also said that the pedestrian was in a crosswalk and had the right of way.

Novak admitted he was emotionally shaken by the incident.

Metropolitan Police Department (web|news) officers detained Novak at the scene for about an hour. He was not arrested

D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Alan Etter said the pedestrian complained of pain in his arm and was taken to George Washington University Hospital with what were described as minor injuries at the time.

April 19, 2008

The blog story of the week so far, and it’s only Monday, CNN anchor Richard Quest was arrested Friday after being stopped in Central Park after curfew. The 46 year-old Quest was apprehended 3:40 on Friday morning for possession of methamphetamine. It’s also been reported that at the time of his arrest Quest had a sex toy in his boot and… a rope tied around his neck with the other end of the rope secured around his genitals. How those facts came to light we don’t know. Quest has been ordered to drug counseling. The misdemeanor charges will be dropped upon completion of the drug treatment. We wish you all the best Richard.

He wasn’t joking around!

If you’re gonna get arrested, that sure is a memorable way to do it!
