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.

Does anyone know what year this woman was 'Miss Sweden' ? Can't find her listed anywhere. She's an author ? Of what ?
Perfect Pitch or Take your Best Shot ? How could a woman ruin your 50 years of great 'family image press ' ? All couples have disagreements. FYI: when it gets physical or injury is incurred it is called 'domestic violence'..plain and simple. This could lead to painful and complicated. Take care, Paul.. via con dios

I thought he was married for along time and had 8 children, did I miss something? He is divorced from the other one? Well, If so, Annette, should be glad she didn't marry him......

Good morning George...uhh I mean Paul,

A suggestion for some damage control. Perhaps if you added this old standard to your show it might garner some sort of understanding and dismissal of this incident with the new 'one'. " And I Love You So" , it does has a good line in it : And, yes I know how lonely life can be....is the line. soooo, audiences might make the leap of faith with you in your new direction. However, I hope you take some boxing lessons...you know, dip and duck techniques. You might need them in future.

Goodnight,
Gracie

I sure hope Paul has a pre-nup! That gold-digging bitch got him by getting pregnant! How does he know that the boy is really his? He wanted a son so badly, and now he's got one, and a crazy bitch of a wife! She's probably only out for his money! Paul, WAKE UP! If the boy is yours, take him away from that lunatic!
