Canadian radio host arrested for assault

One day after he settled a lawsuit with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, police arrested radio host Jian Ghomeshi. (pictured)
Toronto police say Ghomeshi was charged with four counts of sexual assault and one count of what they called "overcome resistance -- choking."
Police urged other women to come forward and opened an investigation after nine women contacted the media claiming assault and sexual assault involving Ghomeshi.
The allegations of his taste for “rough sex” first surfaced in October and this has been a major scandal in Canada. None of the allegations have been proven. CBC fired Ghomeshi due to "the emergence of graphic evidence that he had caused physical injury to a person."
Ghomeshi had hosted "Q," a CBC radio show on culture, since 2007. It was also on NPR and Public Radio International in the U.S.
Ghomeshi surrendered to police with bail set at $100,000.
