Carter pretty much out

This will surprise no one, but NY1 spokesman Steve Paulus told the Daily News the station has no plans to bring Carter back. The Daily News also reports that Carter tried to name drop in a bid to get the judge to drop the wife-beating charges against him. Bad idea jeans, Dominic.

"That kind of behavior violates every principle of journalism and is not something we tolerate," Paulus told the Daily News.

Meanwhile, the Post is reporting that when Carter tried to fly out of town for a few days, an "overzealous flight attendant picked a fight" with him, so he voluntarily left the flight.

All in all, it's not a good time to be Dominic Carter. I guess the judge will decide whether this is all karma. For my money, it would be putting it mildly to say that I find his wife's court testimony unconvincing re: the mysterious day laborer who attacked her. This reminds me of Hiram Monserrate's girlfriend, and actually a whole host of other battered wives and girlfriends who change their stories after the fact. It's sad, but it happens all the time.
