White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley testified Tuesday that his wife, Fumiko (FOO'-mee-koh), often kicked, punched and pushed him. He said he never responded physically.
The mayor is charged with slamming a door on his wife's fingers, throwing hot tea at her, and other crimes. He has pleaded not guilty.
Under cross-examination, Bradley said he never called police on his wife because he was intent on keeping their family together. The Bradleys have two young daughters and are now divorcing.
Bradley, a Democrat, became mayor in January and was arrested in February.
