The mayor of White Plains has filed for divorce a month before he is scheduled to go on trial in a domestic violence case.
Mayor Adam Bradley said in a statement Wednesday that he had decided to divorce from his wife "after exhausting every other recourse."
He requested privacy, but the divorce is likely to come up in his criminal case.
Bradley is accused of throwing hot tea at wife Fumiko Bradley and slamming a door on her hand. He is also charged with harassment and witness tampering. The 48-year-old mayor has pleaded not guilty and resisted calls to resign.
He was arrested in February, two months into his term.
