Anthony Cumia Arrested in Long Island on Charges of Strangulation.

Anthony Cumia, the controversial Long Islander and shock jock best known for co-hosting “Opie and Anthony” locally and then on satellite radio, was released conditionally following his arraignment Sunday on strangulation and other charges after getting into an altercation with his 26-year-old girlfriend at his Roslyn Heights home. The 54-year-old former Opie and Anthony co-host was set to be arraigned early Sunday on charges of strangulation, criminal mischief, assault and unlawful imprisonment, a Nassau County Police Department spokeswoman told TIME.Anthony Cumia from Opie & Anthony was once arrested (taken in to custody) Sat. for domestic violence, & the girlwho is accusing him of brutality Periscoped the weird aftermath prior topolice officersgot right here & cuffed him. Meanwhile a video has surfaced on YouTube documenting the argument between Cumia and Danielle Brand during which the woman — described by Cumia’s attorney in court as his client’s girlfriend — accuses the broadcaster of breaking her rib.

In the clip the woman claimed she had just been assaulted. (Content warning: This video contains strong language and content that may be disturbing to some readers.) In a statement to TheBlaze, the producer of Cumia’s new online program — “The Anthony Cumia Show” — said “we consider this to be a private matter between Mr. In 2014, Sirius XM fired Cumia from the show after he tweeted racially charged remarks that the company called “abhorrent.” He now hosts his own online talk show called The Anthony Cumia Show.

Long time fans who have never known Cumia to be violent debated back and forth all day Saturday on about whether the incident captured on Periscope was some kind of hoax or prank or could possibly be a false accusation, even slowing down frames and speculating that Dani could have been hitting herself in the video.

Court documents show that while Brand and Cumia were together at about 4 a.m. they began arguing over a comment made earlier by Brand about a former “dating partner” of Cumia. Gomez who is one of the hosts of the Legion of Skanks podcast which airs on Cumia’s network went on Periscope this morning to express concern over Cumia’s arrest. “I don’t know what’s going to happen here.

The tweets, which were later deleted, used racial generalizations and said it was “open season on white people in this day and age.” In 1998 Cumia and his co-host, Greg Hughes (known as Opie), were fired from a Boston-area radio station for an April Fool’s hoax that claimed the mayor had died in a traffic accident. Four years later, the show was canceled by Infinity Broadcasting after promoting a contest that resulted in a couple calling in to say they were having sex in St. The pair called him “Homeless Charlie” and he mentioned the possibility of raping former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former First Lady Laura Bush.
