Lincoln police arrested KFRX-FM morning personality Matt McKay on suspicion of domestic assault early last Saturday, reports the Journal Star. Prosecutors on Monday charged McKay (aka Matthew Rydberg), 41, with strangulation, a felony that carries a possible penalty of three years in prison.
“The allegation is that Mr. Rydberg was intoxicated at the scene. There was violence that was committed in front of the children,” Deputy Lancaster County Attorney Jan Lipovsky told the judge while seeking bail of $50,000. His attorney argued that Rydberg has very little criminal history, has been a resident of Lincoln since the ’90s and “does a lot of work in the community.” The judge set McKay’s bond at $25,000.
