John Gotti's Grandson Snitches On Pal In Court: Lawyers

The Teflon Don's grandson snitched on a pal after he was arrested for firing shots into a crowded Queens schoolyard, prosecutors said Monday.
John Gotti -- namesake of the murderous boss of the Gambino crime family -- broke from his family's undying devotion to the Mafia oath of omerta and pinned his legal troubles on a pal he knew only as "Matt."
Queens prosecutors say they haven't been able to find "Matt" because Gotti, the 17-year-old son of Peter Gotti, doesn't know where he lives and doesn't know his last name.
The Holy Cross High School student told cops in a videotaped statement that he picked up Matt and three other friends in his Infiniti SUV when he saw them on an Ozone Park street corner around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.
"Matt" was sitting in the passenger seat when he fired several rounds from a pellet gun into a crowd of 15 to 20 teenagers gathered for a Halloween party in the schoolyard of Public School 207, Gotti claimed.
"He was mad at Matt and began to punch him," a prosecutor said in court today.
One of the bullets whizzed by the ear of a police officer who was going to break up the schoolyard party, prosecutors say.
Gotti was released from a Queens lockup Monday afternoon. As he made his way out of the courtroom his father Peter -- the youngest of mob boss John Gotti's five children -- kissed his son on the cheek.
"Obviously I'm very disappointed right now," Peter Gotti told the News.
"This is his first and last brush with the law. I believe he's disciplined enough at home to never allow this to happen again."
