NEW YORK - A woman has reportedly claimed that former Gov. Eliot Spitzer choked her inside a suite at the Plaza Hotel on Saturday.
There are reports that the woman slashed her wrists after the incident and was hospitalized.
Spitzer resigned as governor in 2008 over a prostitution scandal.
Spitzer was divorced in 2014 following reports of an affair with the much younger spokeswoman for Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Police are now investigating.
