Man Accused Of Slapping Rudy Giuliani Has Charges Reduced

In the video obtained by the New York Post, the worker appears to clap the 78-year-old former New York City mayor on the back with an open hand. Giuliani alleged the worker hit him so hard he felt “tremendous pain” in his back.

The New York Police Department’s (NYPD) initial account said Daniel Gill, 39, “slapped him in the midback while stating, ‘What’s up scumbag?'” Giuliani claims Gill said, “You’re going to kill women,” in reference to his recent comment on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday.

The worker was arrested and initially charged with second-degree assault, but prosecutors ultimately reduced the charges to third-degree assault, third-degree menacing and second-degree harassment.

Gill was released by a judge and ordered to come back to court in August.

 “The charges facing Daniel Gill, who has no previous contact with the criminal legal system, are inconsistent with existing law,” the Legal Aid Society, which is representing Gill, said in a statement Monday.
