Hal Douglas Quinn, the CEO of FC Dallas (MLS), was arrested Saturday afternoon in a New York City hotel room for attacking his wife. Quinn and his wife, Elizabeth, were in town to celebrate a birthday. The details of the celebration are insane. From the New York Post:
“It was his 50th birthday party Friday night. We had a lovely night, and unfortunately things went wrong,” Elizabeth told The Post, adding that they plan to stay together. They have two small children.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Quinn allegedly pummeled his much-smaller wife’s face and body, choked her with both hands, and held a pillow over her face until she passed out, the sources said.
Quinn was arrested at 4 p.m. on charges of assault and strangulation, and his wife was treated by paramedics at the scene for injuries to her face, arm, legs and eye, which was swollen shut, the sources said.
Sounds like a wonderful guy. Quinn has been with Dallas since 2010. [via New York Post]
