WBRE Host Getting Sued for Alleged Abuse and Unpaid Loans

kuharchik_wbre_croppedThe Scranton Times-Tribune reports WBRE personality Dave Kuharchik is being sued by a former girlfriend after she said the two were involved in an abusive relationship that cost her more than $26,000.

Sharon E. Lynett of Dunmore, PA, said she gave Kuharchik $9,000 after he promised he would marry her after his divorce and grant her equity in his West Wyoming home. She said she also loaned him more than $15,000 to help pay his mortgage.

The meteorologist and host of “PA Live!” for the Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, PA, NBC affiliate, is also being accused in the lawsuit of having, “an unreasonable temper…especially after drinking alcohol to excess.”

The Times-Tribune added Kuharchik’s ex-wife filed a “protection from abuse” petition against him in August after she alleged he threatened to kill her while the two were talking on the phone about custody of their three children. The order is in effect until next October.
