CDH Surgeon Booked On Domestic Assault

(Northampton, MA) — The former Chief of Surgery at Cooley Dickinson Hospital is facing a domestic assault charge. 47-year-old Dr. Donald Sonn allegedly punched his wife in the face with a closed fist at their home on Elm Street in Northampton. Police arrived Wednesday around 2:30 a.m. to find Sonn’s wife bleeding in the driveway with three children packed into an SUV. Sonn had already left in another vehicle, but was soon arrested. A hospital spokeswoman says Sonn remains a surgeon in good standing at Cooley Dickinson and that the incident has nothing to do with his practice of medicine.
