Firefighter who punched his ex-girlfriend in Duane Reade takes anger management plea deal

A city firefighter arrested in January for punching his ex-girlfriend in the face at a Midtown Duane Reade took an anger management plea deal Monday.

Clyde Phillips, 36, copped to harassment and disorderly conduct — but the first count will get dismissed if he finishes a 26-week behavioral program, according to a deal he struck in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Phillips was arrested for slugging his former flame at the Eighth Ave. store near Penn Station around 10 p.m. on Jan. 18, court papers say.

The shocking attack was caught on video. His attorney declined to comment.

Phillips is still employed by the FDNY. An order of protection is in place barring him from having any contact with the victim.
