NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - Daredevil Nik Wallenda is firing back at the mayor of Niagara Falls over a money squabble.
Mayor Paul Dyster claims Wallenda owes the city $25,000 in security costs, which the tightrope walker says he has already settled with the state.
The city council agreed with Wallenda, passing a resolution last week directing Dyster to stop his efforts to collect that money.
Wallenda says the mayor still claims he needs to pay up.
So the daredevil issued a statement overnight reading in part, "My contract was with New York State...Because there is not a contract with the city of Niagara Falls, there is no bill. To suggest otherwise is a blatant misrepresentation...I have fulfilled my contractual obligations to the fullest extent, and have magnificent memories of my time in Niagara Falls."
