Staten Island, NY - Nazi-Style Prank Costs Parks Worker His Job
Staten Island, NY - A tasteless Nazi stunt at a Staten Island parks office cost one man his job and will lead to disciplinary action against his two cohorts, a Parks Department spokeswoman said.
Nick Johnson, who wore a motorcycle helmet with a swastika in front of a Jewish co-worker, was fired after a city investigation last week.
Charlie Ekonomakos, who sported a Hitler-style mustache, and Chris Mullusky, who wielded a flaming aerosol can, are still working but face as-yet undisclosed punishment.
Johnson was a temporary employee, parks sources said.
