An irate ex-producer for “Opie and Anthony” took a no-jail plea deal Monday in Manhattan court for allegedly harassing and stalking the co-host of the former talk radio show.

Benjamin Sparks, 40, copped to harassment as a violation and agreed to complete four days of community service. He must also stay away from Gregg Hughes aka Opie.

Sparks allegedly sent Hughes over 40 insulting text messages for two days beginning Sept. 18, the criminal complaint states.

“F—king law breaking piece of sh–t you are. Have fun. I got you,” Sparks allegedly texted Hughes, who now hosts the Sirius Satellite Radio show “Opie with Jim Norton.”

“Everyone wants to take you down,” the disgruntled former employee continued. “Get ready for many lawsuits. I have good lawyers. Looking forward to taking your money.”

Hughes repeatedly told Sparks, who was arrested in October, to stop contacting him, court papers show.




Looks like his "good" lawyers weren't much use.

IIRC, they got into a hissy fit over the fact that Norton makes jokes about how much money he made while XM was freezing the staff out of raises... during the recession... when XM was about to get bought out by Sirius... Wow.
Back at that time, people went to work not knowing if they would have a job at the end of the day. Corporations, banks, stores, etc. EVERYWHERE were going belly up. I had absolutely ZERO sympathy for them then and I have even less listening to it now. Rant over.

Pretty sure Mr. Hughes gave the cake smashee a fifty spot. Of course that point is never mentioned by SJW's.

Never let the facts get in the way of some good false outrage. None of them gave Shit One about that bum

So..... this stuff is criminal now? Sounds like crazy ex 101 level shit to me. Op really is a woman.

That's one of the unspoken selling points of the "progrum." Pretty much everyone who has ever worked on or near it is irreparably damaged as a human.

Me no know so much. Me live in tiny hut up on mountain. One day plane drop satellite radio unit. Hit head. Kill chieftan. There was much sad, but then much happy.

All these word confuse. Make mean dark.

Gods speak often of this man "fletcher." Say very bad man. Much disagree. No say nice things.

top 10 goat!

At first it was intense then it became apparent that it was a sissy fight. The fact that the assistant producer is threatening the host of the radio show, live on the air, is pretty funny.

@OpieRadio You are a loser with no friends. That is a fact. Steve hated your guts before he hung himself. Keep lying to your 2 fans.

He wasn't above doing it on twitter, either. What a cock.

Is there one producer that left and didn't hate Opie? Than, maybe? Sal?
Well. Now we know that Steve hung himself.

Yeah, I believe he squirted something at the Howard fan and then lied to the police about it.
I think there was some spitting and perhaps fisticuffs.
