On Sunday, March 14, 2010, it was reported that Newport Beach City Attorney, David R. Hunt, age 52, was arrested for being involved in a domestic dispute. Police arrived at 8pm on Sunday evening to Mr. Hunt’s home in Santa Ana on suspicion of felony spousal battery. Officers learned Hunt got into an argument with his 18-year-old son, but when his wife intervened, she was assaulted.

Hunt’s 49-year-old wife was taken to a hospital suffering from a laceration to her arm and a large bump on the back of her head, Bertagna said.

The officer indicated that it was unclear what the argument was about and whether or not the couple’s son was injured.
