TORONTO — A published report says Toronto media personality Mike Bullard has been charged with criminal harassment but his lawyer isn’t commenting on the matter.
Asked about the report, Bullard’s lawyer, Arthur Stern, told The Canadian Press that the charges are a matter of public record but says he has no instructions from his client to comment.
The Toronto Star is reporting the allegations against Bullard involve a television reporter he once dated.
The Star says Bullard has been charged with criminal harassment, obstruction of justice and breaching conditions to stay away from the woman, who the Star identifies as Citytv reporter Cynthia Mulligan.
The Star quotes Bullard as saying the charges stem from a “bad breakup” and it is a “very personal thing.”
The Star says Mulligan is out of the country and unavailable for comment.
Bullard once hosted a late night national talk show that aired on CTV and the Comedy Network, and he later hosted a talk show on Global as well.
He most recently hosted a radio show in Toronto but the Star reported he lost that job earlier this fall.

Mike Bullard allegedly tried to get ex to drop stalking charge

TORONTO - Popular Toronto radio host Mike Bullard is facing a charge of obstructing justice for allegedly trying to convince his former girlfriend to drop stalking charges against him.
The comedian faces two sets of charges stemming from his relationship with City TV journalist Cynthia Mulligan, a Gemini-nominated news reporter, which ended in June.
The latest set of charges includes one count for obstructing justice and two counts of breaching an order to stay 100 metres away from Mulligan or her Toronto home.
These offences all allegedly occurred last month — between Oct. 12 and Oct. 16.
The first set of charges allege Bullard criminally harassed Mulligan by repeatedly contacting her and causing her “to fear for her personal safety” and by repeatedly communicating with her through “telecommunications” between June 13 and Sept. 21 of this year.
It’s believed that the initial set of charges cost Bullard his job at Bell Media.
“I can confirm that Mike Bullard has departed the company on Oct. 5,” Scott Henderson, Bell Media vice-president of communications, said in an e-mail.
“Other than that, we don’t discuss any details of contractor or employee matters.”
Bullard, 59, has been living with his surety, Robert J. Breckles, 49, a long-time friend and Stouffville resident, and receiving counselling as required by his bail order.
A reporter knocking on the surety’s door Tuesday was told, “I don’t have anything to say. Mike’s not here.”
Bullard’s case returns to court Wednesday at College Park, but neither he nor his lawyer, Arthur Stern, are expected to attend.
His bail conditions prohibit him from coming within 200 metres of anywhere Mulligan is known or expected to be. He is barred from communicating directly or indirectly through any means with her.
He is also barred from “bringing up her name in any public form,” court documents obtained by the Sun indicated.
Bullard may also not possess weapons, firearms or explosives.
“Everyone who knows Mike knows he’s not a stalker and he wouldn’t hurt a soul,” Stern said in a phone interview Tuesday.
“He’s a good guy. I’d hate to see his life unravel. He wears his heart on his sleeve. He has done so much for this city and its charities.”
Mulligan, who is travelling on assignment overseas, was not available for comment. Bullard was also not available for comment.
“I know Cynthia doesn’t want to see Mike convicted and not get his job back. We don’t know what Cynthia’s interest is in all of this,” Stern said, adding Bullard is “focused on getting well. I’ve known Mike for 15 years through community works.”

Popular Toronto radio host Mike Bullard wasn't present at College Park courthouse Wednesday when his case for harassing his former girlfriend and City TV journalist Cynthia Mulligan was adjourned for three weeks.
Bullard, who has a designation filed in court so he isn't required to show up for every court appearance, is facing obstructing justice for allegedly trying to persuade Mulligan to withdraw the stalking charges against him.
The comic faces two sets of charges stemming from his relationship with Mulligan, a Gemini-nominated news reporter, which collapsed in June.
Bullard's case will be back in court on Dec. 9.
The latest set of charges includes one count of obstructing justice and two counts of breaching an order to stay 100 metres away from Mulligan or her Toronto home.
These offences allegedly took place between Oct. 12 and Oct. 16.
The first set of charges alleged Bullard, 59, criminally harassed Mulligan by repeatedly contacting her and causing her "to fear for her personal safety" and by repeatedly communicating with her through "telecommunications" between June 13 and Sept. 21 of this year.

The more shyte set upon one of the union means more shyte is taken from the other. Domestics are never pretty - especially when the law's involved
