Danny Presti Wiki – Danny Presti Biography

Danny Presti, co-owner of Mac’s Public House, was taken in handcuffs after being arrested by aides of the New York sheriff in Staten Island, New York on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Saying that the authorities were defying the coronavirus restrictions, Presti was detained after crushing a deputy with a car early on Sunday, December 6, 2020. Sheriff Joseph Fucito tried to drive away from Mac’s Public House while Presti’s deputies arrested him for violating city and state closure orders for serving the bosses.

Sheriff Joseph Fucito said Danny Presti was trying to get away from Mac’s Public House because lawmakers arrested him for violating city and state closure orders for serving bosses.

Fucito said lawmakers tried to arrest Presti while leaving the bar early Sunday, but got into Presti’s car, crashed into a lawmaker and continued to drive about 100 yards while his deputy was hanging over the hood.

The sheriff said that 34-year-old Presti was eventually stopped and arrested. The charges against him were pending.

Presti lawyer Mark Fonte said that he has not yet had the opportunity to speak to his client. Fonte said he expected Presti to be brought to court later on Sunday.

The injured MP was hospitalized for treatment of the wounds. The deputy sheriff’s situation did not come to light immediately.

The Staten Island bar was the site of protests last week after the sheriff’s office arrested Presti on charges of violating restrictions aimed at stopping the spread of the coronavirus and blocking government administration.

The Taverna is located in an area designated as an orange zone by Governor Andrew Cuomo due to the increase in COVID-19 rates and was not supposed to serve customers indoors. However, the owners hailed the protesters who took control of the Seattle neighborhood in June and declared the bar an “autonomous area”.

A spokesperson for Mayor Bill de Blasio said Presti’s actions disregard human life. “In both cases, whether it’s breaking public health laws or crashing a car by a uniformed attorney, that person has put the lives of others in danger,” said spokesman Bill Neidhardt.

Officials said the bar was still serving customers on Saturday night, although Presti had been ordered to close completely following its earlier arrest.

Fucito said lawmakers watching the bar saw that the front door of the bar was locked, but customers were directed to a building next door. From there, he said, they could enter Mac’s House of the People through the back door and order food and drink.

Staten Island is much more conservative than the rest of New York City, and is just one of the city’s five boroughs that voted for Republican President Donald Trump in November. The district is home to many police officers and firefighters and is often seen as supportive of law enforcement.
