Co-Owner of Mac’s Public House – Danny Presti was charged in December 2020 with felony counts assault and reckless endangerment after being stood accused of hitting a New York City Sheriff’s Officer with his car.
“I was notified by the district attorney that a review of the medical records showed that the sheriff’s officer did not break his legs nor any other bone in his body,” said Fonte. “Mr. Presti has been totally vindicated with respect to all matters pertaining to the sheriff. We are grateful to the professionals at the district attorney’s office who conducted a deep dive into the facts of this case.”
At the time, Fonte said it “clearly shows my client running for his life from unidentified individuals dressed in dark clothing.”
Fonte also said the grand jury’s vote not to indict Presti “vindicates” McMahon’s decision not to seek bail at Presti’s arraignment in Criminal Court after his arrest.
The physical evidence clearly debunked the claims and allegations made by the NYC Sheriff.
