[Excerpts] It was a scandalous Sunday for White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley, who turned himself in to White Plains police and was charged with assaulting his wife. Bradley defended himself in a news conference Sunday night. "I have to set the record straight," Bradley said... His wife, Fumiko, filed a complaint with police saying Bradley slammed her hand in a door during a fight. Bradley was charged with misdemeanor third-degree assault. "I did not in any way mistreat my wife," Bradley said. "There have been problems in my marriage for some time, and I have made many efforts to deal with them. I will not take this opportunity to publicly argue with my wife in a manner that would expose my children to it," he said... Bradley's legal team confirmed the Mayor's wife was granted an order of protection against him, so he is not living here with his wife and children. He is staying at the White Plains home of his parents... "If the mayor is the person being accused, there is a conflict there," [Bradley's opponent Glen] Hockley said. "Obviously you need an independent investigative group to look in to this"... [Full article here]

[Excerpts] Responding to "issues being raised in the media," Mayor Adam Bradley today released a short statement to address prior domestic issues in which he was involved... "First, there have been no prior allegations of spousal abuse made against me... Second, questions have been raised about an incident that occurred 10 years ago, prior to my marriage. In that instance, Fumiko and I were harassed by a former girlfriend of mine. It resulted in an order of protection being issued, barring the woman from contacting me"... The mayor was charged Sunday with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, following his wife's domestic-violence complaint to police that morning. She accused him of grabbing her arm, putting it against a door frame and closing a door on her hand...

Bradley was released after Hansbury signed an order of protection on behalf of Fumiko Bradley... Councilman Dennis Power, who has known Bradley for about 25 years, said he supported Bradley "100 percent"... [Full article here]
