'Goodfella' gets jail for threatening wife(AP, 12/06/05)

Henry Hill, the former mobster immortalized in "Goodfellas," was sentenced Monday to 180 days in jail for threatening his wife and another man last summer.

The judge ordered the sentence to be served concurrently with a six-month term Hill is already serving for attempted methamphetamine possession. Hill pleaded no contest to making terroristic threats. [...]

Police say Hill threatened his wife with a knife on July 8 at a hotel, then followed her after she left and threatened the man who had been waiting for her.

Isn't that what everyone wanted to do after sitting through Medicine Man?

Can someone cut this guy a break? I mean he probably just had to eat a plate of egg noodles with ketchup. Enough to get anyone to threaten the wife with a knife.

He's go his own line of marinara sauce, so he's probably not eating egg noodle with ketchup

I thought the guy was in the witness protection program, or did Bob Woodward out him?

More importantly Goodfellas was a great movie. "There was nothing that could be done about it. It was a deep greaseball thing."

Not to "blame the victim", but why would any woman marry a gangster?
