Former Los Angeles TV sportscaster and current HBO boxing announcer Jim Lampley was arrested late Wednesday afternoon by San Diego County sheriff’s deputies on suspicion of domestic violence and other counts, authorities said.

A brief news release from the Sheriff’s Department indicated that Lampley, 57, also was being held on suspicion of violating a restraining order and dissuading a witness.

He posted bail of $35,500 and was released from the Vista Detention Facility in north San Diego County.

According to the website, sources indicated that Lampley was arrested at his girlfriend’s home and had been under investigation because of previous complaints.


Lampley once was married to Bree Walker, who has worked as a newscaster in Los Angeles and, more recently, San Diego.
