Rudy Giuliani said he was attacked, but a video showed that he was just tapped on the back. NYC Mayor Eric Adams thinks that Rudy Giuliani should be investigated for filing a false report of a crime.
Rudy Giuliani, a former mayor of New York City, claimed earlier this week that while supporting his son’s campaign, he was assaulted in a grocery store on Long Island.
He explained what happened and claimed that he felt a shot to his back, which caused him to go forward but not fall. But the event shown on the security footage wasn’t as dramatic as Giuliani said it was.
The current mayor of New York City, Eric Adams, demanded that Giuliani be looked into for filing a fraudulent police report during his appearance on “The Daily Show.”
Adams told Trevor Noah,
“He falsely reported a crime, and the district attorney should take that seriously. That person he falsely reported spent 24 hours in jail, that’s not acceptable. I’m going to call the D.A., we must be consistent, all of that theatrics that he did, that’s not acceptable. If that tape wasn’t there, imagine what would have happened to that man.”
Mayor Adams brought up the Central Park Karen incident with Amy Cooper and Christian Cooper while discussing the current state of affairs.
If you all recall, Christian was wrongfully charged with endangering Amy’s life in 2020 after requesting that she put her dog on a leash.
The employee of the supermarket store, Daniel Gill, was first accused of second-degree assault. Court documents, however, show that the charges were ultimately dropped to misdemeanor assault with the intent to cause physical harm, according to NBC News.
Two other misdemeanor counts, third-degree threatening and second-degree harassing, were also listed in the records.
