More Dirt On Dean Tong - NY Post

The chips are finally falling in place for Dean Tong. I knew he had a prior history of domestic violence (without getting prosecuted), but it's good that the NY Post is on top of his history. I hadn't heard about the attempted burglary charge. He's so special - the "expert" on wife beating who is charged with beating his wife. My irony meter just exploded.

HE REALLY IS AN EXPERT ON WIFE-BEATING

By DAVID K. LI

January 31, 2008 -- An expert on domestic violence, who has appeared on several national TV shows, was busted for roughing up his wife, Florida officials said yesterday.

Cops near Tampa responded to the home of Dean Tong, 51, after receiving a frantic call from his wife the night of Jan. 21, according to law-enforcement records.

Tong was booked for alleged domestic violence and tampering with a witness. He was released on $1,000 bail.

Tong has appeared as an expert on shows like "Dr. Phil," "48 Hours" and "Nancy Grace."

"During the argument, he grabbed [his wife's] arm, slammed the door into her foot, and took the phone away from her when she attempted to call law enforcement," Hillsborough County Sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said yesterday.

Tong's wife suffered bruises on her arm and leg, cops said.

Hillsborough Sheriff's records show Tong has been busted before - in 1998 for alleged burglary, and again in 2001 for domestic violence.

Tong was not prosecuted in either case.
