Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani is firing back, after Mayor Eric Adams suggested Giuliani be investigated for filing a false police report.
At issue is Giuliani’s claim that he was slapped at a ShopRite on Staten Island earlier this week.
“I looked at the video and someone needs to remind former Mayor Giuliani that falsely reporting a crime is a crime,” Adams said.
The video shows a man walking up behind Giuliani and slapping him on the back, before the two appear to exchange words. Daniel Gill has been charged with three misdemeanors for the incident.
“Mayor Adams is an idiot. Because I didn’t file a report. Can you imagine that? He wants to prosecute me for filing a false report that I didn’t file. His police department filed the report,” Giuliani said.
