Jailbird's lame bid

He can't stay in jail -- he's got a bullet in his leg.
Career criminal Joseph Cutaia will appeal to a Brooklyn federal judge on Tuesday to let him out on bail because the bullet lodged in his right leg hurts like heck, said his lawyer, Seth Ginsberg.
Cutaia, who is the son of reputed Lucchese soldier Salvatore Cutaia and grandson of Lucchese capo Domenico Cutaia, was charged on Dec. 23 with the botched robbery of a Brooklyn electronics store.
He was shot while getting out of his car on Staten Island on Dec. 1 by unknown attackers, sources said.
Magistrate Judge Robert Levy refused to let the mob scion out on bail last month.
Cutaia is suspected in a series of armed robberies, including the Nov. 11 electronics-store job.
"It's inhumane to keep him in jail," said Ginsberg, who will ask for temporary bail so Cutaia can see a surgeon.
