But state said it 'has not seized their bank account funds'; rather they 'apparently ... were frozen as a result of a bank levy'

The co-owner of lockdown-defying Atilis Gym said the state of New Jersey "emptied out every single dollar that we have" from gym's bank account amid a legal battle with the state over fines for breaking coronavirus-related rules for businesses.

Ian Smith appeared Thursday on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" and told the host that he and business partner Frank Trumbetti checked their bank statement Wednesday morning "and we had no money in our bank account. The state emptied out every single dollar that we have."

Smith on Wednesday tweeted that far-left New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) "and his cronies seized 100%" of the Bellmawr gym's "legal defense money" to the tune of $173,613.60. Smith added, "If you think that's gonna make us stand down, you're delusional." In a video tweet Thursday, Smith cited an amount of $165,000. The gym on Friday didn't immediately respond to TheBlaze's request for clarification on the dollar amount.

"This is in the middle of an appeals process and ongoing litigation in the matter of the fines and several other matters regarding the state, including a lawsuit against Governor Murphy and [State Health Commissioner] Judith Persichilli," Smith told Carlson, adding that "this is an interference with our right to counsel."
