BRADFORD BECKERMAN COURT APPREARANCE FOR ASSAULT ON DAILY NEWS PHOTOGRPAHER


Bradford Beckerman (left) appears in Manhattan Criminal Court on Wednesday, May 20, 2015. Beckerman was arrested and charged with attacking NY Daily News staff photographer Jefferson Siegel in March, breaking his collarbone and knocking out one of his teeth. Next to Beckerman is his lawyer, Mariel LaSasso and at right is judge Lisa Sokoloff.

On Monday, March 16, just before the 1 p.m. court lunch break  photographer Jefferson Siegel was standing outside a courtroom door, waiting for a defendant to leave. He was on a court assignment for the Daily News.  The defendant left with several people. As the group of 4 or 5 well-dressed, younger-middle-aged people left in a group, one person  launched himself at Siegel  knocking him down and breaking his collarbone and knocking a tooth loose that eventually came out.

The assailant is Bradford Beckerman who once appeared on CNBC as owner of Bradford's Tonics, a high-end Florida juice company whose products are sold in better health food stores.
 His case continues and he is scheduled to be back at Manhattan Criminal Court in July.

  2. Zach Lewis, Bradford Beckerman and Ben Giardullo are planning a $6 million undertaking to create the healthy food emporium in the long-vacant storefront.

    The three men formed a company called BBG Ventures, while a company called 311 Partners, owned by Lewis’ father, Hugh, purchased the 35,000-square-foot Wall Street space for $475,000 at a bankruptcy sale.
