Paul Anka's Head and Wife -- Busted

12/12/2008 3:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paul Anka's wife got arrested after she allegedly split his head open with a piece of ice.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the alleged incident occurred on Nov 28 at the couple's home in Thousand Oaks, just outside of L.A. We're told that Paul and Anna, who have a kid together but married just last summer, got into an argument that turned physical. Our sources say during the brouhaha, an ice bucket hit the ground and Anna picked up a piece of ice and threw a fast ball, hitting Paul in the noggin.

Paul went to the hospital, got two staples put in his head to close the wound, returned home and called the cops at 3:05 the next morning to report Anna missing. When cops arrived Anna wasn't there but when she returned they arrested and booked her for felony domestic battery.

The Ventura County D.A.'s office rejected the case, though they're not saying why.

BTW, Paul is 67-years-old and stands 5'6" and weighs 140. Anna is 37, towers over him at 5'7" and weighs 120 pounds.

Paul Anka told TMZ, "It was a stupid little event. It was nothing." Anka said he called the cops because she was missing at the time he returned from the hospital, but cops arrested her after seeing his injuries. He says he never pressed charges, and he and his wife are "fine". Paul says Anna has "been having a tough time with her ex over custody issues," which has stressed her out.

The DA is NOT pressing charges? They have 2 young kids at this house. Both of these unstable adults are capable of killing each other or the kids!

GET TO WORK NOW DA !!! You cannot risk this.

I am surprised that he uses STUPID and LITTLE in the same sentence. That is the story of his life!

He is a stupid little man.. with a big mouth!

If she's 37, she may want to lay off the Meth. It's making her look like she's 57.

Paul says Anna has "been having a tough time with her ex over custody issues," which has stressed her out.

Paul got Anna pregnant while she was married to her ex.

She used to work as a "personal trainer" at a popular sports club and it was widely rumored that she was a "working girl". She looks like an old one.... 37 going on 60! I am sure she helped "stress out" many happily married women as a "working girl". Both have a history of messing ruining others lives.

This is a match made in heaven [ HELL ! ]

They deserve each other.... forever!

Paul,

Get out now !! Mr. Yeager should keep his daughter and you, I'm sure can litigate to keep your son.
This is not going to work . Kick her to the curb with kindness and 'eventually' someone will take this
mistake away. This is serious and the 'last' thing that you need in your life. I hope you had a pre-nup.
