Mob life ain't what it used to be; there was a time when a wiseguy could evade the authorities fairly easily, but now with social media it's hard for a fella to slip under the radar, ya know?
A high-ranking member of the Colombo crime family wanted in a federal racketeering case surrendered Friday — one day after his son posted a photo to Twitter of him standing in a glistening swimming pool in Florida.
Ralph DiMatteo, the clan's alleged consigliere, turned himself into the FBI at 26 Federal Plaza in Manhattan, according to Brooklyn prosecutors.
The 66-year-old mobster took off to Florida one day before the feds busted his 13-co-defendants on racketeering, extortion and other raps related to the infiltration of a Queens labor union.
Whoops! Well, at the very least, he apparently got to spend some time with his son before getting put in cuffs. Mobsters get a bad rap, but apparently—even when he's on the run!—Ralph DiMatteo understands the importance of family bonding.
