In June, Trump lawyer and advisor and former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani was assaulted by a supermarket worker while campaigning for his son Andrew Giuliani, who was running for Governor of New York at the time.
Daniel Gill, an employee at the supermarket, was angry over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, as he yelled his complaints towards Giuliani while he was at the supermarket.
“You’re a f*cking scumbag!” The employee yelled to Giuliani during the exchange.
Gill then smacked Giuliani in plain view.
Gill was charged with assault with intent to cause physical injury, harassment in the second degree, and menacing in the third degree.
The court where the case was filed plans to adjourn the case within six months if Gill does not engage in further criminal activity.

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.
