NEW UPDATES AFTER THE BREAK!
So it’s been a busy day. Correction, I’m still bust from yesterday. It’s 4 a.m. here and I have so much stuff in my inbox I may never get to the end. I got a few questions about the fight that Drita D’Avanzo got into on Tuesday that led to her being arrested and charged with misdemeanor arrest. Let’s get the office version out of the way first, then I’ll tell you what really went down.
D’Avanzo, the 40-year-old star of VH1’s “Mob Wives,” was arrested Tuesday after she allegedly punched a woman in the woman’s Tottenville house, according to NYPD Detective Hubert Reyes.
Where on the body exactly is the woman’s Tottenville house? Is this Jersey slang for a cunt punch?
The scuffle happened at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday after D’Avanzo and the woman got into a verbal dispute.
When the fight escalated, D’Avanzo allegedly threw multiple punches at the woman. She then fled the scene but was later arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault. She was released from the precinct later that evening and has a March 9 court date.
Sources with knowledge of the incident said the victim was Mary Bratti, a former chef at the St. George Italian restaurant Enoteca Maria.
Reached for comment Wednesday, Bratti asked if the Advance would pay money for information on the case. When the answer was no, she had no comment.
