Update: Michael Scott has been acquitted of misdemeanor domestic violence.
A Douglas County jury is deliberating the fate of former TV news anchor Michael Scott, accused by his ex-girlfriend of domestic violence.
Scott's attorney, James Martin Davis, gave an hour-and-15-minute closing argument in the case against his client.
The case stems from an incident last November between Scott and his then-girlfriend, Brandi Sadler, 38. Prosecutors say Scott, 58, hit and tried to strangle Sadler during a fight after a movie.
Davis says Sadler was drunk and is making up the claims.
