JOHN CARNEY has been taken off the air
September 28, 2004
NFINITY Talk KMOX-AM evening host JOHN CARNEY has been taken off the air indefinitely after being accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and leaving the scene of an accident, according to the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH.
The paper reports that CARNEY was involved in a rear end collision at about 3:45a SUNDAY morning and continued driving, later pulled over by officers investigating another unrelated accident. The charges were brought under the city ordinance rather than the more punitive state DWI law, which is usually invoked only in more serious accidents or after other drunk driving arrests.
