Anthony Cumia, the former host of radio show ‘Opie & Anthony,’ was accused of domestic abuse by his girlfriend, who detailed the whole incident over Periscope. Click through to watch the disturbing video.
Anthony Cumia‘s girlfriend, 26, shared a disturbing Periscope video on Saturday, December 19 in which she claimed Anthony had broken her hand and committed other domestic violence. As she tries to speak to the camera, Anthony’s behavior is both weird, and frightening. Click through to watch. Please note that the video is graphic and may be upsetting to some.
The video begins with the woman telling her followers that she was waiting for 911 to get to Anthony’s house after he broke her hand. She wanted people to know what happened to her right away. It appears that someone smacks her in the face as she’s speaking, though it’s not clear who.
Anthony gets angry that she won’t stop recording her periscope, and offers to even pay her to get out of his house. “I don’t need you to pay for a car; I need you to pay for my f–king broken hand!” she shouts at Anthony. She displays her hand, which she says is broken, as well as bruises all over her body. The clip starts getting bizarre here. It cuts to Anthony standing his living room next to a Christmas tree, laughing at his girlfriend.
“Stay away from me, you racist psycho!” she yells, the camera going out of focus as she hustles away from him. Anthony was kicked off his radio show in 2014 after going on a racist rant. “Come on baby, isn’t this great?” he says, laughing as he follows her. He’s clearly not upset about her allegations.
“Come on sweetie, baby. Come on. You wanna sing karaoke?” he says, before you hear the beginning of the Seinfeld bass riff. Wait, what? The clip cuts from there, and leaves us with more questions than answers.
The police arrived shortly after the Periscope, and arrested Anthony on charges of strangulation, criminal mischief, unlawful imprisonment and assault. What a weird, awful situation. HollywoodLifers, are you shocked by the allegations against Anthony? Tell us in the comments!
