Former Soul Train Host, Cornelius Charged With Assault/Battery

Former Soul Train host Don Cornelius has been charged with spousal battery, among other charges, in Los Angeles. According to L.A. news reports, Cornelius’ charges stem from two domestic incidents involving his wife last month. Cornelius was charged with spousal battery, assault with a deadly weapon and dissuading a witness from making a police report, all misdemeanors, city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said Friday. The married 72-year-old producer was taken to jail last month after police were called to his Hollywood Hills home following a report of domestic dispute. Cornelius was released on $50,000 bail. He could face up to one year in prison for each of the five misdemeanor charges.
