Video of the “assault” on Rudy at ShopRite, where Rudy had the person arrested, and said if he wasn’t in better shape he would’ve fallen, cracked his skull, and died. pic.twitter.com/EpgSpPu2fk— Ron Filipkowski 🇺🇦 (@RonFilipkowski) June 26, 2022
I was shoulder-to-shoulder with Rudy inside ShopRite,” said witness Rita Rugova-Johnson. “We’re talking, and all of a sudden an employee came out of nowhere and open-handedly slapped him in the back and said, ‘Hey, what’s up scumbag?’
“[The attacker] was on duty at the time,” Rugova-Johnson added. “The cops arrested him.”
By civil law, definitely an assault. But de minimus non curat lex. Which seems to hold true for criminal matters, too:
Always good advice; especially where people who are very likely to consider themselves Very Important, are concerned.
1. It’s clearly ludicrously exaggerated by Rudy. Ought to be rejected by prosecutors.— AnyAndAllThingsHat (@Popehat) June 26, 2022
2. Don’t touch people, even if you’re mad at them. ESPECIALLY if you’re mad at them. https://t.co/VR6qbaajZJ
