Update: Chad Zumock is back on the radio over at 87.7 — good for him — and back in trouble with the law. He was picked up by Streetsboro police on Oct. 6 for driving with a suspended license. He's due in court Nov. 5.
Chad Zumock, former WMMS on-air personality and former Adventures in Argyle columnist, was acquitted of his OVI charge in Lakewood Municipal Court May 2.
A plea bargain that resulted in no more than a "reckless operation" charge for Zumock was reached.
Last November, Zumock was arrested and charged with drunken driving when he was found passed out at the wheel of a Tim Lally Chevrolet-owned car. He was subsequently fired from his gig at Clear Channel, as the incident essentially voided his contract with the company.
As Zumock explained via his podcast, a bad set at the Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls led to a late night of drinking in Lakewood's West End neighborhood. He did not consent to a breath test, thereby garnering him an OVI charge.
Following the incident, Zumock widely denounced the widespread local news media coverage.
