New York Supreme Court Justice Mark Grisanti approached a uniformed police officer from behind and pushed him with both hands while the cop attempted to handcuff his wife, according to footage obtained by ABC 7. Grisanti and his spouse were cuffed and placed in a patrol car, but neither faced charges, the local outlet reported.
The judge, who was shirtless, yelled, “You better get off my fucking wife” after shoving the officer, the footage showed.
Law enforcement responded to the Buffalo, New York, area after Grisanti, his wife and their neighbors were engaged in a street fight in the middle of a suburban neighborhood, ABC 7 reported.
Cops on the scene declined to charge the judge or his wife because Grisanti didn’t tackle or punch any of the officers, according to the local outlet. The shirtless justice also yelled, “If you don’t get the cuffs off her right now, you’re gonna have a problem” after law enforcement put the woman in a patrol car, the footage showed.
