An account of the incident was published in the New York Post, and the Internet quickly spread the news far and wide. Almost immediately, Talis began a PR campaign of his own.
Talis has gone on You Tube to proclaim his innocence. I watched his video didn't find it convincing; see the video here and see what you think. (Not many people will buy Talis' claim that Lovetro used his daughter's wheelchair as a battering ram against Talis.) Talis gave an interview on a Truther radio show. A Truther web site claims Talis was "framed". (Leave it to conspiracy theorists to come up with a conspiracy to explain the arrest.)
The police investigation is on-going.
I'm betting Talis won't prevail. Don't forget Talis, not the father, was arrested. Jimmie at Sundries Shack is convinced police saw Talis committing the assault.
