Robert "Joe" Halderman, the man accused of trying to extort $2 million from David Letterman, is taking a new approach to speaking to reporters – a polite one.
"Get off my property or I'll call the police," he shouted, according to the paper. "This is a private road. If I see one more of you guys on this road, I will call the cops."
But when Fox News New York stopped by his home on Thursday, the producer, who remains free on $200,000 bail after pleading not guilty to attempted first-degree grand larceny, took a softer approach.
"I can't make any comment," Halderman told the female reporter who knocked on his door. "And I understand that you're just trying to do your job.
"There's nothing I can say and I hope you have a very nice day. I'm not trying to hide or run but there's just nothing I can say," he added.
