Ashley Dennis, the 23-yr-old stepdaughter of former NY Governor David Paterson, was arraigned at Manhattan Criminal Court last night for brutally beating her boyfriend.
In an attack that happened Saturday morning around 4:30am, Ashley allegedly smashed a bottle and frying pan over the head of boyfriend Brian McGuinness. She is also accused of slamming his leg in a door until he lost consciousness.
When police arrived on the scene, they arrested BOTH Brian and Ashley.
The building superintendent, Pearl DiGeronimo, said:
‘There was blood on the floor, on the door handle, all over the hallway. I thought it was a murder.’
And another neighbor reported hearing cries of ‘help me’ and ‘fire’ coming from the apartment. Adding,
‘He wasn’t moving. He had two shoes on top of him like she kicked him out of the apartment and threw the shoes.’
Ashley, an account executive at public relations firm Edelman, told the police that Brian attacked her first and tried to choke her. BUT…..it was Brian who ended up needing medical attention! Three stitches to be exact.
But the injuries didn’t get Brian any sympathy….he was charged with criminal obstruction of breathing, a misdemeanor under the state’s anti-choking law.
Ashley, the daughter of Gov. Paterson’s wife Michelle Paige Paterson, has not commented about the incident.
SMH…it’s real out here. For everybody.
We’ll keep you posted.
