White Plains mayor testifies, claims wife was abusive
White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley took the stand today in his domestic-abuse trial, rejecting his wife's allegations of abuse and claiming she had abused him.
Fumiko Bradley alleged that her husband slammed her hand in a door during an argument earlier in the year.
Bradley testified today that his wife yelled at him and then slapped him after he gave lemonade to their children that his wife told him was for a special occasion. As she was leaving the room, Bradley says that he tried to close the door behind her, and that her hand was trapped when she turned around in an attempt to prevent the door from closing. He added that the door then swung open, injuring his toe in the process.
Prosecutors tried to cast doubts on the mayor's testimony by asking why he didn't call the police and why he was willing to leave their two children in her care.
Closing arguments in the case are set for tomorrow. The case will be decided by a judge, instead of a jury.
