An ex-mobster turned filmmaker was arrested twice in the last two weeks for harassing a disabled former girlfriend, police said.
Danny Provenzano, 55, was charged on Tuesday with criminal contempt for sending a text message to Patricia O’Neil, 51, violating a protection order she had against him, police said.
Provenzano had also been arrested on March 26 for assaulting the same woman back in November 2018 in Midtown, according to cops. The two got into a fight in her apartment over money allegedly used to finance his animated film“Wiseguys and Whackjobs.” Provenzano threw her to the ground and slammed a door on her arm, cops said.
Provenzano’s attorney, Pamela Roth, called the latest accusations nonsense, claiming O’Neil had access to her ex’s iCloud account and sent the message in question to herself.
O’Neil denied the claim to The Post.
Provenzano, a nephew of Anthony “Tony Pro” Provenzano, a captain in the Genovese crime family who was believed to be connected to Jimmy Hoffa’s death, served more than four years in prison on racketeering charges in 2003. He last made headlines in 2017 when he sued Vincent Pastore — who played Big Pussy on “The Sopranos” — for not showing up to a three-day shoot of his television pilot “Manhattan, Kansas” in 2013.
