MLS FC Dallas CEO Hal Quinn arrested in NYC for allegedly suffocating his wife with a pillow

Hal Douglas Quinn, the CEO of the Major League Soccer club FC Dallas, was arrested in New York on Saturday at The Alex Hotel on East 45th Street for allegedly smothering his wife Elizabeth with a pillow.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Quinn allegedly pummeled his much-smaller wife’s face and body, choked her with both hands, and held a pillow over her face until she passed out, the sources said.

Quinn was arrested at 4 p.m. 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, the sources said.

She was then taken to New York Hospital.

Quinn was released on $20,000 bail following his arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Hal is due back in court tomorrow. Elizabeth told the NY Post that it was his [Hal's] 50th birthday party Friday night. "We had a lovely night, and unfortunately things went wrong." And? That they're going to stay together.
