Jury orders broadcaster to pay ex-wife $20,000 in battery case


Television and radio broadcaster Tom Davis will have to pay his ex-wife $20,000, according to a Baltimore County jury verdict a civil trial of her charges that he grabbed and choked her.

Circuit Judge John F. Fader II granted a divorce in May to end the 21-year marriage of M. Thomas and Linda Davis, but ordered her assault and battery case against the Home Team Sports and WQSR-FM radio personality tried separately as a civil action.

Mrs. Davis of Reisterstown said that her husband grabbed and choked her three times and twice pulled her out of their daughter's bedroom, where she was sleeping last year after their marriage fell apart.

Mr. Davis' attorney, Frederick L. Kobb, said he did not know whether the verdict, returned late Wednesday after a two-day trial, would be appealed.
