“New York Times tech guru David Pogue and his wife have been charged with disorderly conduct following a domestic dispute Monday at their Westport home that police said turned physical,” Tom Cleary reports for The Stamford Advocate.
“Pogue, 48, and Jennifer Pogue, 47, were issued the summonses following the apparent altercation at their home on Woody Lane about 10:30 p.m. Monday, police said,” Cleary reports. “The Pogues are the parents of three children — ages 13, 12 and 9 — and the dispute apparently erupted when Jennifer Pogue paid a visit on a night that David Pogue had visitation rights with the children, police said.”
“An argument ensued, which Jennifer Pogue decided to record on her iPhone, police said. David Pogue contends that, during a struggle over the phone, ‘When he wouldn’t let go, she bit his arm,’ said police Capt. Sam Arciola,” Cleary reports. “Jennifer Pogue, however, told police she was lying in bed reading a book when her husband took her phone and struck her in the head.”
“Police did not seize the phone for evidence, but the video was reviewed before officers departed,” Cleary reports. “‘The recording substantiated some of the claims,’ Arciola said.”
Cleary reports, “David Pogue happened to be speaking Thursday at a conference at the Shelton Marriott to benefit a charity dedicated to domestic violence victims.”
