Sports radio's Jeff Dubay charged with felony assault of Cottage Grove woman
STILLWATER, Minn. — Former Twin Cities sports-radio personality Jeff Dubay, who has previously run afoul of the law for methamphetamine possession, has been charged with felony assault in Washington County.
Dubay, 49, was arrested earlier this month and charged with third-degree assault after he allegedly assaulted a woman in the basement of a Cottage Grove house. Dubay denied any wrongdoing Tuesday.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Washington County District Court, officers were called Aug. 2 to a house in the 8000 block of Jensen Avenue South on a report of a physical domestic assault.
As officers approached the house, a woman in a car flagged them down and said a woman in the basement was being assaulted and needed help.
"At that point, the woman who had been assaulted came walking out of the house visibly injured with blood dripping out of her mouth and a large bump around her eye," the complaint states. "She had a tooth missing."
According to the complaint, the injured woman told officers that Dubay lives in the basement of the house and that she and Dubay "have had sexual relations in the past, and it made her upset when he brought women to the house."
Dubay allegedly had another woman in his bedroom, and the woman asked him to ask the other woman to leave, according to the complaint. Dubay "became angry and shoved (her) to the floor," the complaint states. "While lying on the floor, the defendant reached over and punched her several times in the face with closed fists."
Dubay was arrested and taken to the Washington County jail in Stillwater. He was released a week later after posting $30,000 bond.
In a Facebook post Tuesday night, Aug. 15, Dubay wrote that he "was recently wrongfully accused of assault in Washington County."
"You are likely to hear details that are not true and will be refuted by the only eyewitness," he wrote. "Be assured I will appear in court and defend vigorously, as I am absolutely not guilty of the charges. Thank you for your support."
He could not be reached for further comment.
Dubay's criminal record includes felony drug convictions in 2016 and 2009.
Dubay was a popular host on KFAN radio and later 1500 ESPN. His employment at 1500 ESPN was terminated in 2014. More recently, he has run a sports-themed podcast called the "Jeff Dubay Show."
