Sportscaster Warner Wolf’s ‘Plantation’ Case Dismissed, Charge Dropped
March 12, 2019
Chalk this 1 up as a WIN for Warner Wolf — the legendary sportscaster’s charge has been DROPPED in his battle more than his gated community’s “plantation” sign.
As we previously reported … officials say Wolf ripped the word, “Plantation,” off the sign of the private neighborhood exactly where he lives, “Classics Plantation Estates” due to the fact he believes the word is offensive.
Wolf had lobbied the property owners association to make the alter for years — but on Nov. 30, the 81-year-old was fed up and did the job himself.
Wolf was charged with felony criminal mischief final month … but the 81-year-old says it was all worth it … ’cause the case has been dismissed, he tells us.
“My lawyer, Shannon Mcfee, known as me final evening and stated the prosecutor had decided to have the charge dismissed. Criminal mischief,” Wolf says.
“I gave them $1,100 [for the damages] … I was in jail for four hours. It wasn’t entertaining.”
Wolf is a sports broadcasting legend — he worked for ABC Sports and known as Monday Evening Baseball, football and the Olympics. He also had a cameo in “Rocky IV.”
Oh, and you are almost certainly questioning — “It was worth it.”
