Lucali Stabbing Charges Dropped

Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes has dropped all charges in the stabbing case of Mark Iacono, chef at the famed Carroll Gardens pizzeria Lucali. Both Mr. Iacono and ex-con Benny Geritano were charged with attempted murder after the two attacked each other with knives back in May, a scuffle covered by my colleague Nate Freeman. The violence was said to be mob-related, a theory that would seem to be confirmed by the fact that neither man cooperated with investigators, leading to the dropped charges.

“It was a personal matter, it might have gotten a little out of hand, but I think they handled it,” a neighborhood type told The Brooklyn Paper.
