From cyclingnews.com:

The morning anchor for CNN, Jack Cafferty, has pleaded guilty to knocking a cyclist from his bike in New York on May 14 this year. The accident happened on Ninth Avenue when Cafferty turned suddenly in front of Billy Maldonado, who was thrown to the ground as a result. Cafferty continued driving, dragging Maldonado's bicycle under his vehicle and running two red lights, according to the criminal complaint. Maldonado required an operation on his right elbow as a result of the injuries he sustained.

Cafferty was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, assault and harassment. However he got off lightly, pleading guilty to "operating a motor vehicle knowing or having cause to know property damage had been caused." Cafferty's penalty was a $250 fine and 70 hours of community service. His lawyer said, "Jack acted responsibly in this, as he always has."
