Thomas Gioeli, Mob Boss, Suffers Stroke In Prison

A diabetic mob boss who has sparred with the feds over his junk-food habit suffered a stroke a day after failing to convince a judge his poor health earned him a get-out-of-jail card.

Reputed Colombo crime chief Thomas (Tommy Shots) Gioeli complained of "dizziness, neck pain, weakness of his left leg and an inability to move his left arm" last Wednesday, prosecutor Elizabeth Geddes said.
