Violence seems to follow Donald Trump around like a bad stench.
Nathan Crisp, the Vice President of Revenue Management and Distribution at Trump Hotels, was arrested today for allegedly slamming a 27-year-old mother outside his ritzy condo building on Easter Sunday.
The victim, Sheneik McCallum, claims that “she pulled over outside the Avalon Fort Greene condo tower to make sure one of her infants was secured into a baby seat when Crisp yelled at her to get off private property,” according to New York Daily News.
The two began to quarrel. Furious, Crisp “blocked the young mom’s car with his own vehicle and attacked her,” allegedly “throwing her to the ground twice.”
After the attack, Crisp was taken into custody and given a lousy desk appearance ticket for May 2.
According to police, McCallum sustained numerous bruises to her head and foot, but she was not hospitalized.
After the story initially broke headlines, Crisp wrote an email explaining his innocence:
“I am totally innocent of all charges and look forward to defending this matter in court at which time I am confident that I will be fully vindicated,” he wrote. “I do not have any further comment.”
Trump Hotels released a similar statement, saying: “This is a personal matter having nothing whatsoever to do with Trump Hotels or any of its affiliates. That being said, Trump Hotels is conducting its own internal investigation into this matter to determine what occurred and takes these allegations seriously.”
Community advocate Tony Herbert said that Crisp was given preferential treatment by only getting a desk appearance instead of being booked and put through the system.
"I am not sure why this person isn't in handcuffs in a cell somewhere, but we will be reaching out to the brass at the NYPD as to why not,” Herbert said in a statement. "When I learned that this perpetrator worked for the Trump organization, I gotta say I wasn't surprised as to the attitude and disrespect displayed by this guy to this young woman.”
Herbert intends to protest the move on Thursday outside the 84th Precinct.
Crip was charged with a misdemeanor assault.
