A Delaware County promoter already charged with rigging boxing bouts between low-wattage celebrities was charged Wednesday with bribery and theft related to those events.
Damon Feldman, 40, of Broomall, was charged by the state Attorney General's Office with two counts of offering a bribe to an inspector from the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission who had raised safety concerns about a 2008 match.
Feldman also was charged with three counts of theft for making "bogus" claims that proceeds from his events would benefit slain police officers and soldiers from the Philadelphia area.
The new charges are felonies, with each carrying a maximum penalty of seven years in prison. The counts covering allegations that he rigged his bouts are misdemeanors. Participants in Feldman's events have included Danny Bonaduce; Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael; Survivor contestant Gervase Peterson; Tonya Harding; and Rodney King. - Robert Moran
