HLN Anchor Christi Paul’s Ex-Husband Leaves His Reporting Job After Public Urination Incident

The ex-husband of HLN anchor Christi Paul, who was the subject of her recently published book Love Isn’t Supposed to Hurt, has been fired resigned from his job as a local reporter in Milwaukee after a disorderly conduct citation stemming from a public urination incident.

Rob Koebel, an investigative reporter at Milwaukee NBC affiliate WTMJ, allegedly became belligerent with police after he was caught urinating outside an Apple store in Glendale, WI, TVSpy reports. A police report from the August 21 incident, obtained by Whitefish Bay Patch, describes Koebel as “uncooperative” and said he “refused to follow commands.”

Paul’s book, published in May, chronicles the “emotional abuse heaped on her by her first husband, whose violent, profanity-laced tirades left her feeling as though she had no value, no self-worth, and nowhere to turn for help.”
