Big Ang from Mob Wives's son busted for peddling drugs in Brooklyn

Big Ang’s son is in big trouble.
The offspring of the buxom, big-lipped reality-TV star featured on VH1’s hit series “Mob Wives” was arrested today for peddling painkillers and other drugs in Brooklyn, The Post has learned.
Anthony "AJ" D’Onofrio, 23, surrendered at the 68th Precinct stationhouse in Bay Ridge after he was indicted in a five-person narcotics ring involving the sales of Oxycodone, marijuana and cocaine, police sources said.
The operation began in October when undercover officers with the NYPD’s Brooklyn South Narcotics Unit made contact with dealer Michael Donovan, 22, who soon introduced the undercovers to D’Onofrio and three other pushers, sources said.

During the invesitgation, undercovers purchased more than 350 Oxycodone pills at $17 to $19 a pop, as well as quantities of cocaine and marijuana, the sources added. The dealers peddled primarily in Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst, sources added.
At one point, when Donovan was jailed on Rikers Island on a separate matter, D’Onofrio handled his collections, sources said.
Donovan and the other three dealers – Robert Ottofaro, 22, Antonio DeAngelis, 22, and Mohammed Farraj, 22 – were collared yesterday, sources said.
D’Onofrio is charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy, sources added.
“i run my hood im the boss of all bosses and all u haters can keep hating slime....,” he brags on his Twitter feed.
D’onofrio, who lives in Dyker Heights, has prior run-ins with the law.
In October 2011, he was busted for DWI on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and pleaded guilty, sources said.
In August, he was accused of hitting a man with a pipe, and back in February of last year he was nabbed for drugs and marijuana, sources added.
In January 2008, he was stopped for driving while talking on his cell phone and cops recovered an unloaded gun and a small amount of weed, sources said.
His mother – Angela “Big Ang” Raiola – had her own brush with the law in February of this year when two hoodlums lifted a trailer full of kitchen equipment from the Drunken Monkey bar she owns on Staten Island.
Raiola is rumored to be getting her own show on VH1 this summer.
