GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump has been summoned to jury duty in New York City.

Trump, who has catapulted to the front of the crowded Republican field, is expected to report Monday to the state Supreme Court in lower Manhattan.

The real estate developer and reality TV star has been fined in the past for failing to show up to jury duty.

His lawyer, Michael Cohen, told The New York Times that those fines were being waived. Cohen blamed the failures to appear on a summons being sent to the wrong address.

Trump was campaigning at the Iowa State Fair Saturday, promising to give fairgoers free rides on his personal helicopter.

The candidate confirmed the jury summons Friday during a campaign event in New Hampshire.

"I'll be doing jury duty on Monday morning," he said. "I'm looking forward to it. I think it's fun."
