According to The Washington Post, Montgomery County District Judge William Simmons on Monday issued a temporary protective order related to the alleged assault, which took place on May 25, court records say. The temporary order bars Deiber from contacting his wife or entering the Potomac home where she lives.
Deibler, 39, and his wife, Natasha Deibler, 36, have been locked in a nasty divorce, with many of the dramatic details getting a public airing — both on his nationally syndicated radio show, which is based at HOT 99.5 FM, and on her personal blog.
According to Natasha Deibler’s protective order petition, she said that on May 25, her husband grabbed her and threw her into a wall in the presence of the couple’s daughters, resulting in a sprained knee, head injury, bruises and a black eye.
In the criminal assault case, according to online records, Natasha Deibler accused him assault that same day. That warrant was served on Peter Deibler on Friday, according to court records. He quickly posted a $3,500 bond and was released from custody.
“It’s an accusation that’s unfounded,” Peter Deibler said of the assault charge, when reached by phone on Monday.
The Kane Show is broadcast locally on weekday mornings and has been on Hot 99.5 FM since Deibler launched it in November 2006. The show is also broadcast on other radio stations around the country, including those in Tampa, Louisville, Kentucky and Memphis
