Anthony Cumia Charged With Assault After Fight With Woman.

Anthony Cumia, formerly of radio show “Opie and Anthony,” was arraigned Sunday on second-degree strangulation charges after a fight with a woman at his New York home, the Associated Press reports. 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. 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 one of her ribs. Cumia emphatically denies the allegations brought against him, and is optimistic that when the truth comes out, he will be exonerated,” Cumia’s attorney, Alan Schwartz, said. “Simply put, things are not always what they appear to be, and this case is a perfect example of that.” Satellite radio company SiriusXM fired the 54-year-old Cumia last year after the shock jock went on a violent, racist rant on Twitter, in which he complained it was “open season on white people in this day and age.” 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.

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. Court documents show that while Brand and Cumia were together about 4 a.m. they began arguing over a comment made earlier by Brand about a former “dating partner” of Cumia. It says the woman, “after she made several attempts to flee, made it outside the house, only to have the defendant carry her back in, and then pin her against the wall, and wrap his hands around her neck.” When Brand tried to call the police, the documents show, Cumia took away the cellphone and smashed it. In the Periscope video, which shows Cumia in the background laughing, Cumia calls the film, “The Anthony and Dani Show” after they scream back and forth at each other. 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.
