HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — A radio shock jock who hosted “Opie and Anthony” is facing charges over a fight with a woman at his New York home.

Daily Mail reports that the woman streamed part of their fight on Periscope.

Nassau County police say Anthony Cumia was arrested Saturday after the 26-year-old woman contacted authorities.

He was arraigned Sunday on a charge of second-degree strangulation. A judge released him without setting bail but ordered him to stay away from the woman.

He’s due back in court in January.

His attorney, Alan Schwartz, says Cumia “emphatically denies the allegations.”

The 54-year-old Cumia was fired by satellite radio company SiriusXM last year after he took to Twitter to complain in obscenities that a woman had punched him in the face. Sirius called his remarks “racially charged” and “hate-filled.”
