Deputy Mayor Almost Catches Mugger
Breaking! A top Bloomberg aide tackled a mugger! The skel grabbed a lady's cell phone and he and three other skels took off with deputy mayor Ed Skyler in pursuit! Skyler grabbed the skel and took him down (with the help, an NYPD spokesman tells the Daily News, of "the individual slipping on ice")! Then the other three skels came back and helped the skel escape! Then Skyler went back to comfort the woman, whose cell phone is still gone. No arrests have been reported. Skyler was formerly Bloomberg's press secretary, at which time the Observer reported, "Press Secretary's 'Go Fuck Yourself' Just Part of His Considerable Charm." Photo via nyc.gov.
