A college professor who trains city cops and firefighters how to tamp down heated situations was busted on Valentine’s Day for delivering an Ivy League beatdown to her longtime boyfriend — because he cheated on her, officials said.
The victim, according to sources, is a retired NYPD sergeant.
Joann Baney, 54, of Columbia University, was charged with misdemeanor assault. Baney was accused of slugging Walter Frey, 46, while he slept inside her Upper West Side apartment about 10:45 p.m., court records show.
“I hit him because he cheated on me,” Baney told a cop who responded to the Saturday night assault, the court documents show.
