A harassment charge has been filed against a Long Island man who police say approached former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (joo-lee-AH'-nee) and threatened to hit him.
Authorities say John McCluskey repeatedly went up to the former Republican presidential candidate Saturday afternoon while he was walking in the tony beach town of Bridgehampton, a haven for the rich and famous on Long Island's eastern end where Madonna fell off a horse last month.
Southampton Town police say the 69-year-old Amagansett (am-uh-GAN'-set) resident was arrested on a second-degree harassment charge and was released on bail.
It's unclear whether McCluskey has a lawyer. A woman who answered the telephone at his home said she was renting the place for the summer and knew nothing about the case
