Wife says suburban NYC mayor shut door on her hand
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A mayor in suburban New York City has been charged with assaulting his wife by shutting a door on her hand.
White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley turned himself in to police Sunday after his wife filed a domestic-violence complaint.
Bradley was arraigned on third-degree misdemeanor assault in City Court in White Plains, which is just north of Manhattan and is one of the nation’s top suburban office and retail centers.
Fumiko Bradley accuses her husband of placing her left arm against a door frame and closing the door on her hand. She says her left middle finger was injured.
Adam Bradley acknowledges he and his wife have had marital problems. But he insists he “did not in any way mistreat” her.
His next court appearance is Friday.
The former Assemblyman was elected mayor in 2009.
