TORONTO — A published report says Toronto media personality Mike Bullard has been charged with criminal harassment but his lawyer isn't commenting on the matter.
Asked about the report, Bullard's lawyer, Arthur Stern, told The Canadian Press that the charges are a matter of public record but says he has no instructions from his client to comment.
The Toronto Star is reporting the allegations against Bullard involve a television reporter he once dated.
The Star says Bullard has been charged with criminal harassment, obstruction of justice and breaching conditions to stay away from the woman, who the Star identifies as Citytv reporter Cynthia Mulligan.
Charges stem from 'bad breakup': report
The Star quotes Bullard as saying the charges stem from a "bad breakup'' and it is a "very personal thing.''
The Star says Mulligan is out of the country and unavailable for comment.
Bullard once hosted a late night national talk show that aired on CTV and the Comedy Network, and he later hosted a talk show on Global as well.
He most recently hosted a radio show in Toronto but the Star reported he lost that job earlier this fall.
