Anthony Cumia of the “Opie and Anthony” show, is known for his fun and loving side.
However, he was arrested for allegedly abusing his girlfriend at his home in New York.
26-year-old Danielle Brand uploaded a video to the Internet, showing her broken hand and bruises to her body after she was beaten by her boyfriend.
Prosecutors said that Cumia, 54, stomped on his girlfriend’s hand, strangled her and pinned her against a wall after an argument.
In the video, which went viral, Brand said that she was at Cumia’s home in Long Island, and waited for police to arrive to report the abuse.
She showed off her broken arm and some of her bruises. Brand said that she also had bruises on her breasts, “but you won’t be so lucky to see that,” she told her fans in the video.
When Cumia realized that he was being recorded, he made light of the situation and denied hurting her. He was arrested and charged with assault.
Cumia denied the allegations. A judge released Cumia without setting bail, but ordered him to stay away from Brand.
