New Jersey mafia soldier gets 11 months for attacking driver in road rage incident


The man had a dash cam in his vehicle, which documented Jerry Balzano's tough talk, the 911 call of the driver's wife and the thuds of Balzano’s hits.
A convicted wiseguy’s fast and furious rough-up of a driver is getting him an 11-month trip to lock-up.
Jerry Balzano got the almost yearlong sentence Thursday in Brooklyn federal court for a road rage fury caught on camera.
Balzano, a reputed soldier in New Jersey's DeCavalcante crime family, was out on supervised release for racketeering conspiracy in November 2016 when he accosted a driver on Route 17 in Wallkill.
The man had a dash cam in his vehicle, which documented Balzano's tough talk, the 911 call of the driver's wife and the thuds of Balzano’s hits.
Balzano apologized for losing his cool when Judge Kiyo Matsumoto sentenced him. "To the gentleman I had the altercation with, I just lost control. It got blown out of proportion, like a snowball effect."
Matsumoto imposed a 21-month supervised release after the jail time.
Balzano pleaded guilty to violating his supervised release terms in April. Earlier this month, he pleaded guilty to state court charges for the incident, harassment and improper lane use.
This is his second violation of supervised release for his 2011 racketeering conspiracy conviction.
