Man charged in Giuliani 'slap' wants $2M for false arrest

NEW YORK (AP) — A man arrested for slapping former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani on the back has filed a notice of claim against the city for $2 million. Daniel Gill was seen on a video in June touching Giuliani on the back while Giuliani was at a Staten Island supermarket supporting his son Andrew’s campaign for the GOP governor nomination. Gill was jailed for more than 24 hours and says he lost his job at the market as a result of his arrest. On Wednesday he accepted a deal to have the charge dismissed if he stays out of trouble for the next six months. The notice of claim doesn't name Giuliani because he is no longer a municipal employee. The city’s law department declined comment.
