John Gotti's former son in law and Gambino captain busted in Cleveland

Exported.; dnp; EXP;
Carmine Agnello, the ex-hubby of mob princess Victoria Gotti and a reputed Gambino crime family capo, was busted in Cleveland for allegedly returning to his mob roots.

The former Queens salvage yard owner was arrested Wednesday, with Cleveland cops planning a news conference to provide details on the case,according to Channel 5 News in the Ohio city.

(From l.) Carmine Gotti Agnello, John Gotti Agnello, Lindsay Lohan and Frank Gotti Agnello attend a press conference for the film "Gotti: Three Generations" in 2011. The three men are the sons of Carmine Agnello and Victoria Gotti.

Agnello was married to the “Growing Up Gotti” matriarch for 17 years before their union collapsed amidst his racketeering prosecution — and charges of his canoodling with the secretary at his auto-shredding operation.

Blond-maned Victoria Gotti was granted a 2002 divorce from her philandering husband on grounds of constructive abandonment — no sexual relations for more than a year.

She went on to notoriety with their three sons on the reality show “Growing Up Gotti.”
23 years since John Gotti's life sentence

Agnello’s father-in-law was the late Gambino boss John Gotti.

Agnello was in the middle of a nine-year racketeering, extortion and arson rap at the time of her divorce filing. He agreed to pay the federal government more than $11 million as part of his 2001 plea deal.

Agnello’s father-in-law was the late Gambino boss John Gotti, the infamous “Teflon Don” who died in prison after his own 1992 racketeering conviction.

Gotti earned his nickname by beating three previous prosecutions before the feds finally nailed the high-living mob boss.

The burly Agnello, 55, was arrested in 2000 for allegedly using extortion and threats to gain control of the multi-million dollar scrap metal market at Willets Point — near CitiField in Queens.
Carmine Agnello listens to arguments during his bail hearing in New York in 2000, where he faced conspiracy, arson and extortion charges.

In that case, Agnello forced undercover cops posing as local businessmen to sell him stolen car parts at half the going rate.

He also ordered a pair of firebombings against a business that failed to follow his instructions.
