John Gotti busted for steroids
The grandson of John (Teflon Don Gotti was busted with a stash of steroids in Queens on Tuesday, police sources told the Daily News. A team of narcotics cops collared 18-year-old John Gotti - namesake of the notorious Gambino crime family boss - at a house near 92nd St. and 158th Ave. in Howard Beach shortly before 6 p.m., the sources said. It was not immediately clear what led police to Gotti, but the teen was later charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, cops said. Because it was a small amount, he was released after police gave him a desk appearance ticket. It's not the first time that the son of Peter Gotti, the youngest of mob boss John Gotti's five children, has been cuffed for breaking the law. In 2010, he was arrested for trying to flee in his car after one of his pals fired a pellet gun into a crowd of teens at a Halloween party in an Ozone Park schoolyard. Gotti, who was driving the car, was later booked on charges that included criminal possession of a weapon and driving in a car whose windows had been illegally tinted.
