As we previously reported, Mariotti -- a frequent guest on ESPN's "Around the Horn" -- was arrested on August 21 after allegedly roughing up his girlfriend following a spat at a Santa Monica nightclub.

Now, the L.A. City Attorney has charged Mariotti with 7 misdemeanors ... including 4 domestic violence charges, false imprisonment, vandalism and grand theft.

We're told Mariotti is accused of taking his girlfriend's purse and keys -- and the purse is valued at more than $400.

If convicted on all charges -- Mariotti could spend more than a year behind bars.

funny post! enjoyed reading it…Heard about this site from my friend. He pointed me here and told me I’d find what I need. He was right! I got all the questions I had, answered. Didn’t even take long to find it. Love the fact that you made it so easy for people like me.

Post #1- Are you kidding me? If your post was true there wouldn't be no blackmen on the streets. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Stop stealing purses. Get a job.

ATH has never been better! (well we still have Michael Smith once in a while) "Whack" that arrogant bastard once and for all. No more self righteous statements from this clown from Chicago. (arguably the most corrupt city in the U.S.)
