NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A New York City firefighter was arrested this week, on charges that he bashed his wife in the head with an iPad following a heated argument.

The FDNY’s Eric Bischoff, 39, was arrested at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the 123rd Precinct on the south shore of Staten Island. He was charged with second-degree assault.

Police told 1010 WINS that Bischoff attacked his wife in their home and beat her with the Apple device.

When she tried to escape, he grabbed her by the hair, threw her onto a patio floor and locked the door, according to published reports.

The couple had been arguing over a photo his wife had posted on the Internet, but authorities have not said what was in the photo, according to published reports.

Bischoff serves as the Staten Island trustee for the Uniformed Firefighters Association of Greater New York, according to the organization’s website.

Bischoff was not the only New York City employee arrested Tuesday.

At 6 p.m. Tuesday, NYPD School Safety Agent Solomon Wilson, 34, was arrested in the 75th Precinct, which includes the East New York section of Brooklyn, and charged with aggravated harassment, police said.

No further details on that case were available Wednesday evening.
