An associate of the Bonanno crime family and a construction boss are accused of threatening a contractor and his family.  Both men were hauled into court this past week.

From the New York Post:

Peter McMahon, president of DPC New York Inc., allegedly steered a $1.6 million contract to roofer Petros Papapetru in exchange for $150,000, prosecutor Christopher Beard said in Manhattan Supreme Court.​​

Papapetru couldn’t do the job and handed it off to the alleged victim, another roofer, who refused to pay up, according to prosecutors.

The reputed Bonanno associate Vincent DiGregorio and McMahon resorted to “Mob-like” tactics, according to prosecutors.  Both men appeared in a Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday.

“Things escalated from promises of additional work under the same arrangement and, ultimately, turned into threats of physical violence, including the death of the victim, his wife and children,” Beard told Justice Roger Hayes.

Then there was this:

As McMahon waited for his case to be called, with his hands cuffed behind his back, he insisted he was nothing more than a recreational bagpipe player and had nothing to do with the alleged scheme.

He added, “Why don’t you write about the charity work I do?”

DiGregorio and McMahon pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted grand larceny and aggravated harassment, and bail was set at $250,000.
