You probably won’t be hearing about this arrest on “Good Day New York.”

Fox 5 anchor Rosanna Scotto’s 20-year-old son has been charged with stealing a Chanel purse at the trendy Marquee club in Manhattan early Saturday, court records show.

Louis Ruggiero was busted at 1:20 a.m. after cops spotted him walking out of the 10th Ave. club with the purse tucked under his jacket.

The grandson of ex-Gambino boss Anthony Scotto was also found in possession of a bag of cocaine and a forged Illinois license, court records show.

The bag, valued at more than $1,000, belonged to a 40-year-old woman, sources said.

Ruggiero was charged with grand larceny, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Ruggiero, who has no prior arrests, was released on his own recognizance at his Saturday night arraignment.

Calls to reps for “Good Day New York” were not immediately returned.

The Fox 5 anchor's son has been charged with stealing the purse at the trendy Marquee club in Manhattan early Saturday, court records show.

Ruggiero is the son of Scotto and her lawyer husband Louis Ruggiero.

Rosanna Scotto — who co-hosts “Good Day” with Greg Kelly, son of former NYPD Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly — has been a fixture at Fox 5 for more than 25 years.

She’s also the co-owner of her family’s E. 52nd St. restaurant, Fresco by Scotto.

Her father, Anthony Scotto, ruled the Brooklyn waterfront for two decades until he was arrested on federal bribery and racketeering charges in 1979.

Scotto, then 45, was convicted of receiving cash payoffs of more than $200,000.

He was sentenced to five years in prison and fined $75,000 on Jan. 22, 1980.
