DENVER — Talk radio host Tom Martino was arrested Friday night on charges of assault and disturbing the peace, the Denver Police Department confirmed Saturday.

The arrest happened about 11:15 p.m. near Interstate 25 and Auraria Parkway in some type of public venue, DPD said.

A female victim was transported to the hospital with undisclosed injuries, DPD reported. Her name was not released.

Martino remained in jail Saturday evening.

Martino, also known as the “Troubleshooter,” hosts a business-focused radio program on KHOW 630 AM. He previously contributed to FOX31 Denver before leaving the station in 2011.

In a recent Facebook post, Martino said he had been “going through a lot of family stuff,” noting that his brother-in-law died recently.
