( 4UMF NEWS ) ‘Mob Wives’ Star Drita Arrested For Assault:
“Mob Wives” star Drita D’Avanzo was arrested on assault charges after clobbering another woman in Staten Island, officials said Tuesday.
D’Avanzo, 40, was busted after she visited the home of Mary Bratti, 38, on Amboy Road in Tottenville about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
During an argument, she punched Bratti, a chef, in the face and ran off, police said.
The reality television star later surrendered at the 123rd Precinct stationhouse and was charged with misdemeanor assault.
She was given a desk appearance ticket and sent home, cops said.
D’Avanzo, wife of Lee D’Avanzo, a bank robber who did two stints in prison, is known as a “sexy firecracker” who often got into fights with other “Mob Wives” stars.
Things got so heated during the filming of the sixth and final season, which is now airing on VH1, that several of the cast refused to work with her. Bodyguards were hired in case a fight broke out, sources said.
