Name: Joe Gassman
Age: 35
Occupation: producer, The Free Beer and Hot Wings ShowLast Seen: Naperville, IL
Bee-otched For: being a woman beater


Sometimes, I wonder how Free Beer and Hot Wings are doing with their show.

Yeah, they're still doing well in the ratings here in Grand Rapids, but let's face it. They've lost affiliates here in Michigan in Traverse City and Lansing and they were forced to let go Eric Zane, who to some was the heart and soul of the show. Of course now, he's at WBBL 107.3 and is now "Huge" Bill Simonson's puppet.

Now, it looks like the man who kinda took Zane's place could be out of a job soon, and deservingly so.

Joe Gassman, aka "Producer Joe" on the show, which originates on 97.9 WGRD was recently arrested near Chicago for beating up his girlfriend. According to the police, he threw her onto concrete, causing injury to her shin, hand and breast. He's been charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery which occurred on Sunday. He is expected in court tomorrow.

As a result of the altercation, Gassman has been suspended from the show and WGRD. In a statement, station GM Rick Sarata said: "As you may be aware, Joe Gassmann of The Free Beer and Hot Wings showwas arrested after a domestic altercation this past Saturday night.  Joe has been suspended and will not be appearing on the show, pending resolution of the police investigation of the matter."

You know, it bothers me that people like Gassman are in relationships, but I'm not. I've never hurt a woman and when I was forcing my druggie ex out of my apartment last week, I kinda wanted to put my hands on her, but I didn't. Why? Because I'm a real man who would never try to hurt a soul.

What Joe Gassman did was beyond stupid and if FB&HW bring him back, well, God damn them. I understand that the show's a shell of its former self since Zane was shown the door, but hey! They can always find new and exciting talent that haven't done anything as stupid that Producer Joe did.

Hopefully, the only thing Joe will be producing soon are license plates.

  1. You are an idiot. Why don't you wait and get the facts before you attack someone's name and character? I can see why you are a bee-otch at relationships.
