Mobster equally liable for prison ping-pong injury

A Colombo mobster who sued the Feds after he broke his kneecap playing prison ping-pong is equally liable, a judge has ruled. Thomas “Tommy Shots” Gioeli is 50 percent at fault for his slip at the Metropolitan Detention Center. The mob boss slid in a puddle of water near the prison showers as he chased an errant ping pong ball. Gioeli was sentenced to 18 years in prison in 2012 after he was convicted of mob-related murders. Gioeli still owes the feds $365k in restitution as part of his sentence — meaning any money he’s awarded would go toward that debt first.
