STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – According to police, 39-year-old Eric Bischoff was arrested after he became angry at his wife over a photo she’d posted on the Internet and then hit over the head with an iPad.
According to court records, Bischoff and his wife got into an argument at their home about 12:40 a.m. last Saturday over a “picture displayed on the Internet.” Bischoff, who had been drinking, discovered Apple has an app for that and hit his wife in the head with an iPad a couple of times. She tried to get away, but he allegedly pulled her hair before throwing her to the floor of their backyard patio.
When police arrived at the the couple’s home they found Bischoff’s wife with injuries to her head, but they didn’t find Bischoff as he left the scene and had taken the iPad with him. He wasn’t arrested until the following Tuesday after being located at the 123rd Precinct station house.
Eric Bischoff was charged with second- and third-degree assault but later released on own recognizance, with a temporary order of protection. He has denied the allegations against him.
“It’s a personal, private matter. I have two young children and now I need to worry about their welfare. We’re in the process of finding a reconciliation and resolution,” he said. “In these matters, what’s reported is not always as it happened.” Amen, brother.Tags: alcohol, Beating, Domestic Violence, Eric Bischoff, firefighter, iPad, New York
