NEW YORK (AP) — New York City's mayor says a former deputy mayor who quit after being arrested on a domestic violence charge would have been fired otherwise.

Stephen Goldsmith, then-deputy mayor for operations, was arrested July 30 in Washington, D.C. A police report asserts he shoved and grabbed his wife. Goldsmith and his wife dispute the account; prosecutors are not pursuing charges.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the accusation "made it intolerable" for Goldsmith to stay employed by the city. He made his comments Sunday after speaking at a church service in Brooklyn.

The mayor says Goldsmith offered his resignation in a meeting between the two men the day after the arrest.

Bloomberg has come under criticism from the city's public advocate because the arrest wasn't mentioned when it was announced Goldsmith was leaving.
