Defendant Apologizes to Wiesel





A man charged with dragging the Holocaust scholar Elie Wiesel from a hotel elevator in San Francisco apologized to him in court. The defendant, Eric Hunt, 22, has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted kidnapping, false imprisonment, battery, stalking, elder abuse and hate crimes after the February incident. “Mr. Wiesel, I’m sorry for scaring you and I’m sorry you experienced the Holocaust,” Mr. Hunt said. “My grandfather fought the Nazis, and I’m sorry about what happened.”
