SCOTTSDALE, AZ — The former host of "the Positive side of Sports" has been charged with theft of studio equipment.

In court documents filed in Maricopa County Superior Court last week, Positive Side of Sports host Roy Garibaldi, 63, was charged with theft.

Court records show that Garibaldi is accused of stealing over $100,000 in studio equipment for his former employer, TrurealityTV, in 2016. Garibaldi allegedly rented four storage lockers to hide the items.

Scottsdale police recovered most of the property after obtaining a search warrant for the lockers. Garibaldi admitted to taking the items because his previous employer owed him money, police say.

Garibaldi has been summoned to appear in superior court on October 22.
