According to court papers, the dispute started early Saturday after the girlfriend, identified during the hearing as Danielle Brand, commented about a “former dating partner” of Cumia.
Brand suffered a fractured rib, swollen arm and chest pain, prosecutors said.
Then she tried to call for help from the home’s landline phone, but Cumia pulled the phone from the wall.
Opie and Anthony” is among the popular shows in the radio that can be listened all over the United States and Canada that was mentioned by him.
He has collected hundreds and thousands of listeners by the time due to his high popularity of the show.
Cumia first met radio personality Gregg "Opie" Hughes when the latter held an O. Simpson song parody contest on his Nighttime Attitude show on Long Island radio station WBAB.
He and Joe decided to enter the contest, and recorded an entry as Rotgut titled "Gonna Electric Shock OJ" to the tune of "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding.
He was charged with strangulation in the second degree, unlawful imprisonment in the second degree, assault in the third degree and criminal mischief in the third and fourth degree, but has since pleaded not guilty.
The fouled-mouthed shock jock still showed no sign of remorse.
Hughes and Cumia accepted an offer to host afternoons at WAAF in Boston, Massachusetts and launched Opie and Anthony in March 1995.
The pair were fired in April 1998 for an April Fool's Day prank that had listeners believe Boston Mayor Thomas Menino was killed in a car accident while transporting a young female Haitian prostitute.
Cumia begin his early career with the evening show at WBAB named Nighttime Attitude.
