A former editor from Below Deck Mediterranean has been arrested for a heinous crime.

Christopher Charkowski was was taken into custody (before getting bonded out) for felony child abuse of his 6 year old son.

Not only was Christopher caught ON CAMERA brutally beating his little boy, he threatened his wife, Dara Faye‘s life.

X user, @Beks, exposed the child abuser to her social media page to bring attention to her friend, Dara, who “found the courage after years of abuse & gaslighting to leave” Christopher.

@darafaye endured to keep this private for safety reasons, while caring for four kids is real and beyond measure. Dara is a stronger person than her soon to be ex-husband will ever be.”

Another former friend of the abuser shared her detestation of how he treated his son.

“Chris, I’m am beyond disappointed in you. As a friend, I will never forgive you for this in any way shape or form. I’m absolutely disgusted in you.”

Bravo TV fans jumped into the comment section to hold the network accountable for not doing a better job vetting their staff.
  • End this man’s careers. Lock him up forever. Absolutely abhorrent.
  • @BravoTV you better be doing something about this immediately.
  • @BravoTV what are you doing about this? Is he still employed?
  • This your employee/editor Christopher Charkowski abusing minor children @Andy @evolutionusa ???
  • @Andy One of your employees Christopher Charkowski was in a video punching his six year old child! 

For the record, Christopher’s IMDB page states he worked in Below Deck Med‘s editing department from 2019-2022, so he is no longer contractually bound to Bravo.

Content warning! This video is awful – especially with sound.
