Giuliani told the station that the man, a store employee, was angry over the Supreme Court’s decision on Friday to overturn Roe v. Wade. He said he didn’t fall to the floor but the slap was so hard he almost lost his balance.
Police say it happened just before 3:30 p.m. at a ShopRite store.Trending:
“All of a sudden, I felt this tremendous slap on my back or banging on my back. I didn’t know what it was,” Giuliani said.
His attacker was chippy, to say the least.
“There were curse words and kinda threats. It seemed to have to do with abortion, you know, with the fact that he thinks women are gonna die,” Giuliani said. “He looked either inebriated or under the influence of drugs, and he wouldn’t stop, so a number of the security people came over, they restrained him, and I said call the police.”
Police say 39-year-old Daniel Gill, of Staten Island, was taken into custody and is being charged with assault in the second degree.
Video of the incident was soon circulating online, and can be viewed below.
