Trump reports for jury duty, takes campaign break

NEW YORK - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is taking a break from courting voters to go to court as a potential juror.

Trump shook hands and fist-bumped bystanders as he reported for jury duty Monday at a Manhattan court. He arrived in a limousine and walked up the courthouse steps, waving.

The GOP front-runner said last week he was "looking forward to appearing."

The real estate mogul and reality TV star has been called previously but didn't appear. A spokesman said Trump never got the summonses because they had been sent to the wrong address.

Over the years, many celebrities have been called for jury duty in New York City. They include Madonna, Spike Lee and Woody Allen.

Former mayors Michael Bloomberg and Rudolph Giuliani both were called while in office.
