Randi Rhodes mugging suspect is brought in for questioning
-------
Randi RhodesNY Daily News:
Air America host Randi Rhodes wasn't mugged — Air America radio host Randi Rhodes is temporarily off the air, but claims she was brutally attacked near her Manhattan apartment are bogus, her lawyer and a police source said today. — Fellow host Jon Elliott claimed on the liberal radio network . . .

Rhodes' lawyer told the Daily News she was injured in a fall while walking her dog. He said she's not sure what happened, and only knows that she fell down and is in a lot of pain. The lawyer said Rhodes expects to be back on the air Thursday. He stressed there is no indication she was targeted or that she was the victim of a "hate crime." . . .
