A violent New Jersey Bloods gangster with a long rap sheet has been arrested for threatening Mayor Bloomberg during a City Hall press conference. John Manning, 27, of Newark, a gang member with 12 arrests in the Garden State, showed up at the security entrance of the government building while the mayor held an outdoor press conference on the city’s new bike share program on Monday. “I want to take on the mayor in a fight. Man vs. man, and knock him out,” he told cops at the Broadway and Murray St. entrance around 11:30 and to attend the event. When he was asked to leave, Manning refused, saying, “I'll wait as long as it takes.” He was arrested and charged with trespassing and obstruction of government administration. Prosecutors asked that he be held on $1,000 bond, but the judge released him of his own recognizance on Tuesday.
