According to court papers, a tiff over moving parked cars sparked the stormy brawl between WABC weatherman Bill Evans and his wife.
The meteorologist and soon-to-be divorced wife Dana Evans gave police wildly conflicting versions of the violent, auto-moving throw down on the night of May 4.
Dana Evans, 48, said she wanted to move cars outside their Old Greenwich driveway, so they could both leave on time the next morning.
She went into the couple’s master bedroom and asked for her hubby for car keys, but Bill Evans refused to give them up, according to an affidavit by Greenwich police officer Kristin Lindstrom, summarizing Dana Evans’ version of events.
The wife then tried to get the keys herself and Bill Evans “grabbed her by the left hand at which time she attempted to throw the keys across the room and out the door,” Lindstrom’s report showed.
“That the keys landed in the closet and they both attempted to reach the keys first.”
Bill Evans’ version of the parking brawl was remarkably different, saying his aggressive wife was the aggressor.
The weatherman’s version included his teenaged daughter Maggie, who asked him to move cars for before the morning’s commute. Bill Evans, 52, told police he was still putting on his pajamas, and told Maggie he’d do it as soon as he was fully dressed.
“Dana began to insult him in front of their children and told him that he does not live there nor is he wanted there,” according to the police report, summarizing Bill Evans’ version of events.
“Dana then stormed into into the room and dumped the contents of his work bag on to the bed and retrieved the keys.”
When Bill Evans asked for his keys back, “Dana then punched him with her right hand on the left side of his face while holding the keys and then slapped him,” the WABC weatherman told police.
Both Bill and Dana Evans were charged with disorderly conduct and assault in the third degree.
