Someone forgot to tell Cory Favreau of that, however.
The 25-year old, from Plattsburgh, New York pleaded guilty to third-degree assault recently. He also pleaded guilty to a contempt charge for violating a court order to stay away from his mother.
The charges stemmed from an ugly incident this past spring. Favreau hit his mother with a novelty bike chain in May after she expressed praise for Katherine McPhee. The mother was treated for a cut on her head and released, police reported.
Needless to say, we hope this is the last violent act we need to relay based on the show or anyone involved in it.
