Former auto pitchman Chris Bostick entered a conditional plea of “no contest” to one count of domestic assault in a Williamson County courtroom Monday morning.
According to his attorney Ed Yarbrough, Bostick’s charges will be dismissed and expunged from the record “with successful completion of one year probation” as part of the plea.
Yarbrough told Nashville’s News 2 part of Bostick’s probation requires an anger management assessment.
The domestic charges stemmed from an incident at the Bosticks’ Williamson County home on November 4, 2012.
According to court documents, Bostick got in a verbal argument with his wife. Published reports say he also slammed the door on her, leaving a visible knot of her face.
Bostick turned himself into police the next day.
Yarbrough says a gun issue associated with the widely reported case was never part of what was presented to a grand jury.
The matter was heard before Circuit Court Judge James Martin.
While Bostick’s well known television ads are gone, Bostick told Nashville’s News 2 his Universal Kia dealerships continue to thrive.
Prior to Bostick’s arrest, Universal Kia was named Carnival Kia.
