Thomas “Tommy Shots” Gioeli the one time acting boss of the Colombo crime family is suing the Butner Low Correctional Facility for a slip and fall. Serving a 18 year sentence he often complains about the conditions at the prison over twitter and his personal blog. Now he claims leaky piping is the cause of a nasty slip and fall which left him injured although the extent of his injuries are still unclear. According to the suit “Plaintiff Thomas Gioeli has been rendered sick, sore, lame, maimed and disabled and so remains due to the negligence of defendant,”
Gioeli was convicted back in 2012 on a range of mob crimes including murder conspiracy including mob rivals in an attempt to gain power with in the New York Mafia family. He was sentenced back in March and suffers from heart problems and diabetes and now a fall on a wet floor could make him an earner once again even though he isn’t on the streets.
His lawyer Martin Schiowitz refused to comment on the pending lawsuit when his office was contacted. The slip and fall happened back in August at the North Carolina penitentiary according to details of the newly filed suit.
