CLEVELAND, Ohio – A popular Cleveland radio host has pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor charges stemming from a July 4 celebration last year.

Shane French, known as “Rover,” agreed to a plea deal that will put him on probation for one year. He was also fined $750 and ordered to make restitution to one of the victims from the incident.

French was arrested July 5, 2013 on Whiskey Island Drive. According to a police report, French and another man starting “shooting fireworks in the direction [of a boater]…nearly hitting him.”

The boater turned out to be an off-duty Cleveland police officer. According to the police report, French argued with one of the officers even after he identified himself and showed his badge.

Before his sentencing, French apologized for shooting off fireworks and frightening victims.
