Anka's Wife Arrested For Felony Domestic Battery
Veteran singer PAUL ANKA's wife has been arrested for felony domestic battery - four months after the couple wed.
Authorities were called to the singer's home in the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks on 28 November (08) following a heated argument between Anka and his wife Anna Yeager.
According to TMZ.com, Anka needed medical attention after Yeager, 37, threw a piece of ice at her husband's head.
Anka, 67, received two staples to close the wound, returned home and called police the next morning to report his wife missing.
Upon her return, police made the arrest and booked her for felony domestic battery.
Anka, who did not press charges, tells the website, "It was a stupid little event. It was nothing," adding his wife has "been having a tough time with her ex over custody issues."
The Ventura County District Attorney's office has reportedly rejected the case.
The couple, which met when Swedish-born Yeager became Anka's personal trainer, has been together for four years.
They have a three-year-old son, Ethan.
