John Gotti's grandson pulls five years for torching car in mob road rage attack

John J Gotti was jailed for five years for torching a car over a mafia-linked road rage incident. He pleaded guilty last year to setting the fire in 2012 at the order of Bonanno family mobster Victor Asaro after he was cut off by the other motorist.

The 24-year-old is the son of Peter Gotti, one of five children of the famous Gambino family boss, also known as 'Teflon Don', who died as a federal prisoner in 2002.
Prosecutors said Asaro ordered the arson after a traffic dust-up in the Howard Beach section of Queens. Asaro, who was acquitted in 2015 in connection with the infamous 1978 heist at the Lufthansa cargo terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport that was retold in the 1990 film "Goodfellas," was sentenced in December to eight years.

Gotti already is serving an eight-year state sentence on drug charges. Half of his federal sentence will run concurrently with that sentence.
