Talk show host charged with assault

The long-time host of Rooster FM’s Crosstalk radio program, Austin Harris, was charged with criminal offenses Monday in connection with a domestic dispute.

According to a statement from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service: “A 41-year-old male from George Town was formally charged…with offenses of common assault and damage to property. The offenses occurred at an address at Governors Harbour on March 9.”

Although the release did not identify Mr. Harris by name, police sources confirmed to the Cayman Compass that it was he who had been charged.

Mr. Harris was due to appear before Summary Court later this month to answer the charges.
