Authorities believe a Florida restaurateur accused of pistol-whipping and beating a customer might have connections to organized crime in New York City.
When a Florida judge signed warrants Friday for Joseph Milano, they also listed the name "Joseph Calco." The Daytona Beach News-Journal obtained the documents.
Calco was an aspiring mobsters who became a federal informant and testified at the trial of Anthony Spero. Authorities called Spero one of New York's top organized crime figures.
Milano was arrested Friday on two charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The State Attorney's Office told the newspaper the charges were "based on his identity as Joey Calco."
Milano was arrested in January after being accused of attacking a customer who complained about a calzone.
