NEW YORK - The NYPD is investigating whether Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York, choked a woman at a Midtown hotel.

According to published reports, Spitzer allegedly choked the woman, who is in her 20s, inside a suite at the Plaza Hotel on Saturday. The woman may have been trying to break up with Spitzer at the time, according to reports.
