A Staten Island firefighter is facing assault charges after police say he beat his wife with an iPad.

Cops say Eric Bischoff lunged at his wife with the pricey tablet in their Tottenville home because of a photo she posted online.

They say Bischoff was intoxicated at the time.

Police say he also grabbed his wife by the hair, threw her onto the patio and locked her out of the house.

Bischoff was arrested and has been suspended from the FDNY.
