Police: Hedge Fund Manager Assaulted By Wife With Wine Bottle

Jul 15 2010 | 10:38am ET

A former hedge fund manager was beaten by his wife with a full bottle of wine following an argument this weekend.

Susan Van Cook was arrested on Sunday, after Greenwich Hospital notified Rye, N.Y., police that her husband sought treatment for his injuries, which included a bite on the forearm. Joseph Van Cook, who was found to have late-traded mutual fund shares while working at Pritchard Capital Partners, required three staples and several stitches.

Susan Van Cook was charged with misdemeanor assault and endangering the welfare of a child, although the charges could be upgraded based on medical reports.

Susan Van Cook allegedly assaulted her husband during an argument at around 9 p.m. Their 6-year-old son was home at the time.

“It was supposedly a full bottle of wine” Susan Van Cook used to hit her husband in the head, Lt. Joseph Verille of the Rye police told the Journal News.

Joseph Van Cook has asked for a review of the finding that he late-traded mutual funds from 2001 through 2003.
