Detectives are looking into a man’s claim that disgraced former Gov. Eliot Spitzer threatened to stab him in a restaurant.
According to the Associated Press, Jamie Antolini filed a complaint regarding an argument earlier in the month.
Antolini said he was having dinner Jan. 2 when Spitzer went into the Manhattan restaurant and became angry.
Police said Antolini accused Spitzer of threatening him with bodily harm, including stabbing him with a knife, and making statements that he would kill him.
Spitzer, a Democrat, resigned in 2008 amid revelations that he had sex with prostitutes. Before being governor, he had been the state attorney general.
