NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Curtis Sliwa, founder of the Guardian Angels and talk radio host, was arrested Tuesday morning outside Gracie Mansion.
Sliwa was reportedly trying to hand Mayor Bill de Blasio a lawsuit when he was arrested by NYPD officers.
In video posted by Sliwa to YouTube, he is heard saying "I want to serve the mayor." Sliwa is ushered to the side and handcuffed as a vehicle with tinted windows leaves through the mansion gates.
The NY Post cited a tweet by political activist Michael Faulkner on the arrest: “Curtis Sliwa was just arrested outside Gracie Mansion for serving Bill de Blasio with papers to disqualify him for WFP ballot line#yeswewill."
According to the NY Daily News, police arrested Sliwa because he refused to move.
