Cops won’t charge Fox 35’s Clinkingbeard

Police in Lake Mary decided Thursday not to file charges against Fox 35’s news director Bob Clinkingbeard for bumping sports anchor Thomas Forester during a heated conversation.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that after police issued subpoenas to witnesses and were able to view a security camera videotape of the incident, they “concluded that what happened was an accident. Clinkingbeard did bump Forester during an argument, but he was trying to point in the opposite direction — not shove or hit Forester, said Lake Mary police Detective Matthew Shaefer.”

Forester called police to the station and initially sought battery charges against his boss.
