Update: The case against Rob Schmitt was dismissed on 3/19/2009 for lack of evidence. Smith’s bond and and pre-trial were canceled.
update 9:33pm: so far it looks as though we’re the only ones with this info. WTVJ usually reports local newsies getting in trouble but this time nothing. WFOR hasn’t done it either. WSVN passes on other station’s public personnel matters and has for a while.
And to the best of our knowledge WPLG had no mention of their reporter getting arrested at 6pm.
Anonymous tipster just alerted me that WPLG’s Rob Schmitt was arrested yesterday.
According to the booking info on the Metro-Dade corrections site, Schmitt was booked at 10:29 this morning yesterday on alleged battery/domestic violence charges.
He has been released on his own recognaissance with $1500 bond

Allegedly they’re taking Rob’s bio off the site and “managers are flipping out” according to the tipster.
Schmitt joined WPLG in January of 2008.
