Joey Buttafuoco Arrested

This guy is unbelievable.

Buttafuoco, 47, co-owns California Collision of Chatsworth. He allegedly told undercover investigators how to file phony insurance claims for undamaged cars, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said.

For those who do not remember how he gained his notoriety originally:

While living in New York, Buttafuoco gained notoriety in 1992 when 17-year-old Amy Fisher shot his wife, Mary Jo, in the face.

Fisher, nicknamed the Long Island Lolita by the New York City tabloids, served seven years in prison.

Buttafuoco, who pleaded guilty to one count of statutory rape, served six months in jail. He and his wife later moved to California and divorced.

His name last was fodder for late night (and other) comedians for months. I am sure it will be making a short comeback now.
