FC Dallas CEO Doug Quinn Arrested In New York

Quinn was released on $20,000 bond and is due back in court today.

Well this was not the way FC Dallas fans wanted to start this Wednesday out.

FC Dallas CEO Doug Quinn was arrested over the weekend while in New York City for his 50th birthday celebrations for allegedly beating and strangling his wife, Elizabeth.

The New York Post reported on the matter this morning and stated that Quinn was arrested at 4 p.m. Saturday on charges of assault and strangulation, and his wife was treated by paramedics at the scene for injuries to her face, arm, legs and eye, which was swollen shut.

"In these cases, which are usually ‘he said, she said,' there is often another side to the story, and there certainly is one here," Hal Quinn's lawyers said in a statement.

Quinn, who lives in Dallas, was in town "with friends just visiting," said his lawyer, Alan Futerfas.

A spokeswoman for FC Dallas did not immediately comment.

Quinn is due back in court tomorrow.

Boy, this is a tough story to swallow here. We've stated on here before that this would be an off season of changes with FC Dallas but man this will be something entirely else.

We will stay on this story as much as we can for you all here.
