Gangsta developer Anthony "Mr. Marlboro" Spalliero was arrested Monday by Brookdale Community College Police, according to the Asbury Park Press. It appears that he and an associate attempted to take a 22-year old coed "for a ride", utilizing a gun for encouragement. Fortunately, a College Police officer was on bike patrol and, hearing the woman's screams, responded. Spalliero and his associate, who is still at large, took off.
Today's Press enumerates the charges against Spalliero: Possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, making terroristic threats, and aggravated assault.
Spalliero is out on $150,000. bail; he was already out on $250,000. bail for four counts of Federal bribery charges as a result of the F. B. I.'s Operation Bid Rig.
Operation Bid Rig is an ongoing Federal investigation which involved the arrest of a multitude of local and county officials and has had such interesting side notes as a County Corrections Officer eating his gun (Or was it fed to him?) and a mysterious plane crash.
