The man accused in the murder of the Gambino crime family’s alleged boss reportedly once attempted to make a citizen’s arrest of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, the New York Post reported, citing police sources.
According to the report, Anthony Comello showed up outside city halls to protest de Blasio and tried to make a citizen’s arrest of him.
Police told the newspaper that the incident was just one example of Comello’s odd behavior and stunts he took part in.
Comello, 24, was arrested Saturday in Brick Township in connection with the death of Francesco Cali, who was shot dead earlier this month in front of his Staten Island home. Cali was believed by authorities to be leading one of the country’s most powerful crime organizations in the country.
During a court appearance on Monday in Toms River, the suspect wrote a string of slogans on his hand, including “MAGA Forever,” an abbreviation of President Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.” He also had “United We Stand MAGA” written on his hand.
