Eliot Spitzer at a midtown Manhattan hotel Saturday night, a law enforcement source said Sunday. Spitzer, 56, was at the hotel on Saturday night with a woman in her late 20s and the pair got into an argument that included shoving and may have involved Spitzer putting his hand against her neck, said a law enforcement source familiar with the incident. Lisa Linden, a spokeswoman for Spitzer, said Sunday night via email: “There is no truth to the allegation.” According to the law enforcement source, the woman, who has known Spitzer for a couple of years, got agitated during the argument and apparently sustained a superficial cut on her wrist. Hotel personnel called the police after seeing the woman’s agitated state and her cut, the source said. When police arrived the woman declined to press charges; Spitzer was not interviewed by police, the source said, adding charges are unlikely. Spitzer, a Democrat, resigned as governor in 2008 after a federal affidavit was made public, alleging Spitzer, referred to as “Client 9,” had patronized high-end prostitutes.
