Newport Beach City Atty. David R. Hunt was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of felony spousal abuse at his Santa Ana home, police said Monday.
Hunt, 52, was arrested at 8 p.m. Sunday at his home in the 600 block of East Santa Clara Avenue by officers responding to a family disturbance call, said Santa Ana police spokesman Anthony Bertagna.
Hunt had apparently been arguing with his adult son when his wife, 49, tried to intervene.
At that point, Hunt allegedly struck her and, as she fell, she cut her arm on a table and hit her head on the hardwood floor, leaving a large bump, Bertagna said.
