The bad blood between CITADEL MEDIA syndicated talker and GUARDIAN ANGELS founder CURTIS SLIWA and jailed mob boss JOHN "JUNIOR" GOTTI continued this week with SLIWA claiming GOTTI threatened his life in court.
SLIWA told the NEW YORK POST that GOTTI, at a pre-trial hearing for his upcoming racketeering trial, stood up, turned, pointed at SLIWA sitting in the courtroom, and whispered "you're going down," prompting SLIWA to leap to his feet and curse GOTTI out. GOTTI's lawyer CHARLES CARNESI said that GOTTI was pointing to a friend and said "he's going down," referring to the friend going to a secure interview room.
GOTTI was tried three times for his alleged involvement in SLIWA's 1992 shooting, with all three ending in hung juries.
