Talk aboutburying the lede
Here's how the article began:
A court hearing to determine if probation will be revoked for former radio talk show host Jon Matthews was rescheduled for next month.
Matthews, 61, appeared in a Fort Bend County court room today where prosecutors had planned to ask state District Judge Brady Elliott to revoke his probation and sentence him to prison.

After the jump, the good stuff.
It's only way down in the story that new, quite lurid details of Matthew's hobbies appear:
According to a July 5 report prepared by the Community Supervision and Corrections Department of Fort Bend County, Matthews tested positive for alcohol in June of last year and again on July 3 [...]
The report said the Texas Attorney General's Office found that Matthews had been viewing obscene material over the Internet and participated in an Internet fantasy message exchange in which he described sex acts performed on a 3-year-old boy.
"Mr. Matthews presented himself to be a female stripper who took her three-year-old son to work with her. The defendant described sexual acts between the strippers and the three-year-old boy," the report said. Matthews does not have a 3-year-old son.
It's good to know Matthews doesn't have a 3-year-old son. But left unanswered is whether or not he's a female stripper.
