Gambino associate pleads guilty in ‘pants on fire’ torching of Mercedes

Tuccio faces a mandatory 10 year prison term. Peter Tuccio, 27, pleaded guilty to felony extortion for torching the Mercedes of a Queens businessman who stopped making payoffs to an irate mob captain.

The arson didn’t go as planned: co-conspirator Gino Gabrielli set himself on fire in the attempt. Gabrielli, accompanied by Tuccio, turned up at hospital for treatment of burns.
