Criminal Charges Against Staten Island Supermarket Worker Who Smacked Rudy Giuliani Dismissed

New York – A Staten Island supermarket worker physically assaulted Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in June.

Giuliani was smacked on the back by Daniel Gill, a ShopRite employee while he was out campaigning for his son, Andrew Giuliani.

Andrew Giuliani is running for election for Governor of New York.

Daniel Gill smacked 78-year-old Giuliani and grumbled about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade.

“You’re a f*cking scumbag!” the employee shouted to Giuliani as he droned on about Roe v Wade.

The New York Post obtained surveillance video of the assault.

The 39-year-old ShopRite employee was taken into custody and charged with felony assault, menacing and harassment.

Rudy discussed the attack later that day:

Daniel Gill appeared in court on Wednesday and his charges were dismissed.

If Daniel Gill stays out of trouble for 6 months, the criminal charges will be dropped.

CNN reported:

The case against the man accused of slapping Rudy Giuliani on the back in a Staten Island supermarket has been adjourned “in contemplation of dismissal,” and is expected to be dismissed in six months, according to a source with knowledge of the case.

Daniel Gill, a ShopRite employee, was charged with assault with intent to cause physical injury, harassment in the second degree, and menacing in the third degree for allegedly slapping Giuliani.

The organization representing Gill has previously said that their client “merely patted” the former mayor of New York City “without malice to simply get his attention.”

It is not an admission of guilt or wrongdoing, nor is it a guilty plea, the source said, adding that Gill was not required or asked to agree to anything as part of the adjournment.
In New York state, an adjournment “in contemplation of dismissal” is “not considered favorable to the defendant until the adjournment period has expired and the case has actually been dismissed,” according to the court system.
