An off-duty correction officer and his girlfriend were busted for assault early Sunday after a violent dispute at their Bronx home, police said.

Darren Pinckney, 48, was arguing with his girlfriend, Natasha Santana, at the couple’s Colgate Ave. apartment near Lafayette Ave. in Soundview when he shoved her to the ground and smacked her in the face around 2:45 a.m., cops said.

Santana, 37, fought back by hitting Pinckney with a cane and bottles, cops said.

Police soon arrived at the home and charged Pinckney with assault in the third degree. Santana was slapped with attempted assault in the second degree.

Both of their arraignments were pending Sunday.
