White Plains Mayor Denies Assaulting Wife

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — The mayor of White Plains, on trial for domestic violence, is denying he ever assaulted his wife and says it was she who regularly attacked him.

Mayor Adam Bradley testified Tuesday that his wife, Fumiko, often kicked, punched and pushed him. He said he never responded physically.

The mayor is charged, among other things, with slamming a door on his wife’s fingers and throwing hot tea at her. He has pleaded not guilty.

Under cross-examination Bradley said he never called police on his wife because he was intent on keeping their family together. The Bradleys have two young daughters. They are now divorcing.

Bradley, a Democrat, became mayor in January and was arrested in February.

    New Yorkers now have a no fault divorce law, so couples who want a divorce do not have to show incompatibility by fighting with each other!
