Court Documents Reveal Domestic Abuse Accusation Against Bill O'Reilly

Court documents published by Gawker reveal that Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly was accused during a custody battle of having physically abused his ex-wife.
According to testimony, a court-appointed psychologist named Larry Cohen testified that O'Reilly's daughter had witnessed an incident of domestic abuse.
Cohen told the court that O'Reilly's daughter had seen "an incident where I believe she said her dad was choking her mom or had his hands around her neck and dragged her down some stairs."
O'Reilly and Maureen McPhilmy were entangled in a three-year custody battle after their divorce in 2011.
The dispute ended three weeks ago with McPhilmy winning custody of their two minor children.
