NYPD: Eliot Spitzer Accused Of Choking Woman In Plaza Hotel
Police in New York are investigating whether former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, who resigned his position in the wake of a prostitution scandal in 2008, has any ties to a possible assault at a Manhattan hotel over the weekend after a woman accused him of choking her.
The New York Police Department said on Sunday that they are investigating Spitzer, 56, after a 25-year-old woman, who has not been named, told police that the disgraced former governor choked her inside a room in the Plaza Hotel, located steps away from Central Park, on Saturday night, two law enforcement sources told CNN.
“The victim has indicated that the subject is Eliot Spitzer,” the NYPD said in a statement on Sunday. “Through an ongoing investigation, we are attempting to further establish the identity of the subject and the nature of the incident.”
Eliot Spitzer Being Investigated Following Woman’s Claim Of Assault
Detectives in New York are investigating a woman’s claim that former Governor Eliot Spitzer assaulted her at a midtown hotel, a New York law enforcement source said.
Lisa Linden, a spokeswoman for Spitzer, said there was no truth to the allegation.
Manhattan police are attempting to determine whether Spitzer, who resigned from the governorship during a prostitution scandal in 2008, was involved in the incident, which allegedly occurred on Saturday, the law enforcement source said.
The law enforcement source would not provide details on the nature of the alleged assault. The New York Post said the woman had accused Spitzer of choking her, but Reuters could not independently confirm that report.
CNN reported that police went to the hotel Saturday after receiving a call about an emotionally disturbed person, citing an unnamed source.
Do you think they’d skip his party affiliation if he was a Republican?
