Former Anchor Michael Scott was found not guilty of the misdemeanor charge of Domestic Violence yesterday. 

Prosecutors had said Scott's estranged girlfriend reported that he had choked her, hit her in an eye and ripped off two fake fingernails while threatening her in a November incident.

Scott denied the accusations and said the woman made up the incident. Yesterday, the Jury agreed and found him not guilty. 

Scott has worked in television news at two stations in Omaha and at stations in Dallas and Denver and in Huntsville, Alabama.

He also ran for Congress in 1998.
