Feb. 23, 2002 -- NEW YORK (APJP) -- New York Police Department sources confirm to American Politics Journal that conservative commentator and editorialist John Fund was arrested this morning in New York City and charged with assault.
The charge stems from an alleged incident earlier in the week involving Fund and his former girlfriend, Morgan Pillsbury.
The couple's turbulent relationship was detailed last September in an article by investigative journalist John Connolly published on the WeaselSearch web site (http://www.weaselsearch.com/jfund4654544318.htm), and has also been the subject of reports by the Washington Post's Lloyd Grove (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A58111-2002Jan16.html), the New York Post's Page Six (http://www1.excite.com/home/entertainment/celeb/page_six_article/0,13907,01_17_2002_5,00.html), and American Politics Journal (http://www.americanpolitics.com/20020116Editors.html).
