Did The Enquirer Take Down a Castellini Arrest Story?

Robert S. Castellini, the 46-year-old son of Reds owner Bob Castellini, and his wife Deanna were arrested and charged with domestic violence for fighting in front of their children.

Crime reporter Kimball Perry was all over the story, as he has a long history of detailing the crayist of the cray in Hamilton County courtrooms, reporting on Monday that both Robert and Deanna went in front of a judge that morning and how court documents described “visible scratch marks around the neck of Ms. Castellini” and Robert having “visible scratches around his neck and shoulder.

Despite such drama and intrigue — three Castellinis work in the Reds front office and Robert’s lawyer is Hamilton County GOP chairman Alex Triantafilou — The Enquirer appears to have pulled the story from its website as of Tuesday afternoon.

Maybe it wasn't pulled, just that whoever runs the Enquirer website was fired and has to re-apply for his or her job?

Oh so very glad my wife and I are out of journalism.

The crayist of the cray, in other words more than cray-cray.

Should be "crayest of the cray." Sorry, but I'm old school.

Is he in the Reds Hall of Fame too?

Cincy is all old money. This action if true would be unsurprising

The Enquirer took down the story because moments after it was filed crime reporter Kimball Perry was ducking punches from Reds Hall-of-Famer Ron Oester and found himself on the floor with Oester on top of him.

Also, the Crayest of the Cray must be a top-of-the-line supercomputer. I'm not sure why the Hamilton County courtrooms need one.

That's it. I give up all hope for Western Civilization.

Enjoy the post-apocalypse.
