David Hunt has been serving as the Newport Beach city attorney since December 2008.

Police said that Hunt, 52, and his 18-year-old son were arguing when his wife intervened. Hunt hit his 49-year-old wife, she fell, cut her arm on a table and hit her head on the floor.

Suffering from a bump on the back of her head and a laceration to her arm, Hunt’s wife was transported to the hospital.

Hunt was booked into the Orange County Jail and released on Monday.
