The Staten Island Advance is reporting that a government cooperator has allegedly informed Federal agents that Anthony was allegedly involved in two cocaine deals earlier this year. He is currently out on bail of $100,000. The cooperating witness was said to be wearing a wire and the evidence of the alleged crimes, if true, seems to be quite incriminating. If convicted he is facing up to 20 years in prison. The full article, gives many details of this investigation, including Anthony's criminal past, and is linked below.

Anthony recently had a grand opening in Staten Island for his new eatery, Pizza Pasta Perfect, a pizzeria located on Hylan Boulevard. Many of the cast members of Big Ang and Mob Wives were out to support his business venture.

Can't feel sorry for the guy. Have these men not realized that no amount of money is worth jailtime?

It's sad because he could've had a chance at success making an honest living.
