Todd Schnitt (MJ Kelli) vs. Bubba The Love Sponge (Todd Clem) Law Suit Rages On In Tampa, Literally, Megan Vincent-MJ Kelli Road Rage Incident, Did Bubba Clem Incite ?

There are no records of a Megan Vincent arrested in Hillsborough County as the Megan Vincent-MJ Kelli Road Rage incident appears to have happened in the Tampa area and the woman accused of the road rage, Megan Vincent, lives in Brandon, both in Hillsborough County, see Hillsborough County Sheriff's arrest inquiry link for any Megan Vincent, click here. The name Megan-Vincent might possibly be a combination of the woman and her husbands first names as used on the Bubba the Love Sponge Show. It appears at this point the Hillsborough County Sheriff is investigating the Megan Vincent-MJ Road Rage incident as they are looking for any witness's.

It appears that the constant haranguing of MJ Kelli by Todd Clem aka Bubba the Love Sponge on his number #1 rated Tampa Fl radio show has influenced some of Bubba's listeners to take action, physical action, against MJ Kelli aka Todd Schnitt, could Todd Clem aka Bubba the Love Sponge be arrested for inciting the Megan Vincent-MJ Road Rage incident ?

In the original law suit brought by Todd Schnitt (MJ Kelli) vs. Bubba The Love Sponge (Todd Clem) one of the most important claims made is that Bubba The Love Sponge (Todd Clem) incited others to Injure MJ Kelli;

"The actionable statements at issue were maliciously broadcast by Defendant (Bubba The Love Sponge aka Todd Clem) as part of numerous morning drive radio shows for the sole purpose of systematically and intentionally exacting "Bubba Clem's revenge", ridiculing, casting in a false light, Injuring and/or inciting others to Injure, ridicule, cast in a false light or harm the Plaintiff's (Todd Schnitt aka MJ Kelli & Michelle Schnitt) both professionally and in their personal, private lives" It appears that the Megan Vincent-MJ Kelli Road Rage incident falls directly into this catagory.

The lawsuit says Clem has referred to Schnitt on air as a snitch and called his wife a whore. In an email read by Clem on his show, a listener said that Schnitt should be "thrown into a burlap sack and tossed into the river" and someone should "drive that little midget to drink a bottle of bleach," the lawsuit states.

It also alleges that Clem told his listeners, known as "Bubba's Army," to mouth off at Schnitt during the Gasparilla Day Parade. "I need all you sick b------- and drunken drunkards, if you will, at the Gasparilla Day Parade ... bring your loud mouths and grease that midget. Grease 'em," the lawsuit says. The word "grease," the lawsuit explains, can be interpreted to mean "whack or eliminate someone, to bump someone off." more from this source...................

Monday 10/12/09 Megan Vincent-MJ Road Rage Incident.....Kyle in St. Lewis said two local guys took MJ off of his pedestal, Bubba wonders how did the guy find out, Kyle said they talked about it on the air, Manson as MJ (MJ Kelli Tampa Radio personality) said he was filing a lawsuit against the station. Bubba said MJ is desperate, the ratings came back on Thursday, he’s in seventh place. Bubba thinks he talked about MJ getting a woman arrested on Friday (Road Rage Incident), Manson as MJ said it was felony bird flipping. Bubba asked Brent if he got an update about that, Brent said he didn’t get a response.

Bubba thinks he should replay the clip in question, from September 21, 2009, where Megan called up to say she and her husband flipped MJ off. Bubba said someone needs to flush MJ out, he thinks those words are part of his lawsuit against Bubba, we then heard the clip (Megan Vincent) An excerpt from that day’s recap is below;

Megan in Brandon said she had a story about MJ, she said he told the cops she tried to run him off the road (Road Rage). She said her and her Husband taunted MJ, Manson as MJ said “Star fhp”. A few days later, some cops showed up at Megan’s friend’s house, as Megan was driving her friend’s car. Mj claimed she threw a cup and some ice at him, he also claimed the car was full of people. Bubba asked her if the cop gave some editorial comments, Megan said she’s probably not the first person the cops have had to call about MJ. Bubba thinks MJ shouldn’t be a public figure if he can’t take it, Bubba said he’s had people come up to him at CD signings and have flipped him off, he doesn’t call the cops on them. Brent said it’s a felony to give cops false information, Megan said MJ totally lied.”

Bubba came back and took a call from a woman who said she loves to listen to the show, she asked Bubba to continue to be honest. Bubba asked Brent what has gone down, Brent said the state is looking into witnesses (MJ Road Rage incident), Bubba said this just screams of the power MJ and his wife have, Brent agrees, he said he’s looking into it via the Freedom of information act. Bubba got distracted by Ned falling over, Ned apologized for doing that. Bubba wonders if various people know this is happening, Brent said no. Bubba wonders how can anyone have this much power, Manson as MJ said that there’s a new Sharif in town, he laid out some rules for his power, Bubba thinks Michelle (MJ Kelli's wife) had a lot to do with them getting arrested for the hog trial.

Bubba The Love Sponge aka Todd Clem was arrested for "CRUELTY TO ANIMALS F3", third degree felony on 3/29/2001 by the Hillsborough County Sheriff, see link http://www.hcso.tampa.fl.us/pub/default.asp?/Online/qdisp/bn=01017382 .

In 2001, Clem was arrested, along with two hunters and executive producer Brent Hatley and prosecuted by Hillsborough County State Attorney Mark Ober on charges of animal cruelty after the hunters slaughtered a pig in an on-air event called "Bubba's Road Kill Barbeque." Clem and the others were acquitted by a six person jury in 52 minutes at trial in 2002.

The Federal Communications Commission issued a Notice of Apparent Liability (a precursor to a fine) of $755,000 against four stations owned by Clear Channel Communications (including its parent station, WXTB) on January 27, 2004 for objectionable segments of "Bubba the Love Sponge" aired on its stations in five Florida cities: Callahan, Clearwater, Port Charlotte and West Palm Beach, and Jacksonville. The fine consisted of the maximum of $27,500 for each of 26 airings of a segment plus $40,000 for record-keeping violations.

The segments included graphic discussions about sex and drugs and according to the FCC were "designed to pander to, titillate and shock listeners". One segment featured the cartoon characters Alvin the chipmunk, George Jetson and Scooby Doo discussing sexual activities.

Clear Channel Communications discontinued Bubba's show on February 23, 2004 and two days later, Clear Channel CEO Maceo Butler testified in front of Congress, stating that the "Bubba the Love Sponge" show would no longer be broadcast on Clear Channel.
