Radio Host Ed Lover Cops to Lesser Charge in Assault Case, Victim Furious

On Tuesday (October 23), Former Yo MTV Raps! host and current Power 105.1 morning show DJ, Ed Lover copped to a charge of disorderly conduct in a case where he was accused of striking a woman during an argument at a nightclub. According to the New York Post, Lover accepted a plea deal offered by prosecutors and will server seven days of community service. Lover was arrested in 2005 and charged with assault and harassment after a scuffle with a woman at the nightclub Duvet in Manhattan. The alleged victim, Letitia Belford, claims Lover punched her in the face as she argued with one of his female associates. As a result of the blow, Belford was treated for a mild concussion and received 20 stitches to her face. Belford, who reportedly had witnesses ready to testify on her behalf, was furious that prosecutors allowed the DJ to get off with a slap on the wrist. However, Lover also had witnesses ready to testify that the blow was made in self defense after the woman threatened him with a glass.
