Former Opie and Anthony host Anthony Cumia was arrested after an altercation with a 26-year-old woman who the woman says turned violent. She accused Cumia of strangling her. Cumia, 54, was arrested on charges of strangulation, assault, criminal mischief, and unlawful imprisonment. He was arraigned and released without bail and ordered to appear in court in January to face the charges. The judge also told him to stay away from the woman.
Cumia was fired by SiriusXM last year after another altercation where he said a woman punched him in the face. Sirius later called the outburst “racially charged” and “hate-filled.”
