Tracking Mob Scion In Jail

It's been a rough week for Michael Persico.
Tuesday at 6 a.m., the FBI knocked on the Colombo crime family scion's Dyker Heights home with a warrant for his arrest on racketeering charges.
But the son of Carmine "The Snake" Persico and brother of Alphonse "Allie Boy" Persico was already in custody -- having been busted the previous night for alleged drunken driving in upstate Monroe.
Persico, 53, had a squeaky-clean image as head of Romantique Limo, never so much as being charged with a crime. But while being processed after failing a sobriety test, he got a call from the FBI, who said he and seven others were wanted for allegedly shaking down a World Trade Center construction firm and more.
So he drove to Manhattan and turned himself in, sources said.
