Skolnick’s mother Shelly, called 911 around 11am ET to report that her son was punching his father, Louis, in the face and arms. Police had been called to the residence earlier in the day, when Skolnick’s estranged wife contacted police to check on him. The Miami sports media personality cooperated with authorities during that visit, but later “went nuts”, believing his parents had contacted the police.
The fracas resulted in a bloodied nostril and torn shirt for Skolnick’s father. He told police that his son punched him on the left side of his face and left arm, and a visible bruise on his arm was from a previous altercation one week earlier.
