Rick “Wright” Senninger, executive producer and host of the radio program Outside The Wire was arrested and booked at the St. John’s County Jail in Saint Augustine, Florida on a Count 1 Larceny charge Wednesday.
According to a phone conversation with a Florida state attorney fraud investigator, Senninger also has bench warrants issued on him in Michigan for non payment of child support. Additional charges may be pending.
Senninger will be extradited to Michigan.
According to The St. Augustine Record:
A St. Augustine radio personality who has a nationally syndicated show is in the St. Johns County jail awaiting return to Michigan on a larceny charge, according to the St. Johns Sheriff’s Office.
Richard Senninger, 51, who is known on air as Rick Wright, anchors “Outside the Wire” on WFOY 1240 in St. Augustine. He wasn’t on the air Wednesday night and station owner Kristine Phillips said he “most definitely” isn’t going to be back on
Phillips said the St. Johns Sheriff’s Office told her of Wright’s arrest at his Palencia home around 1:45 p.m. and that he wouldn’t be on the air Wednesday.
“I started getting calls from former colleagues who told me about not getting paid and his passing bad checks. So things had sort of come to a head with us,” she said, noting he owned her a “pretty substantial amount.” St. Johns County Sheriff’s spokesman Kevin Kelshaw said Senninger was picked up on a larceny by conversion charge out of Iosco County, Mich.
Wright is being held at the local jail without bond and is expected to appear before a judge this morning.
