Soprano Star Vincent Pastore Sued Over Assault

180px-vincent_pastore_2006_croppedVincent Pastore, who attained fame as “Big Pussy” on the Sopranos, is in a trial in New York over his alleged assaulting of his former girlfriend, Lisa Regina, 47. She is suing for unspecified damages in the tort action alleging assault by Pastore.

In 2005, Pastore pleaded guilty to an attempted assault on Regina and was sentenced to 70 ours of community service.

The attack allegedly pulled Regina out of a car in Little Italy in April 2005 and dumped her and her luggage on the street.

This follows the sentencing former Soprano cast member Lillo Brancato Jr. to ten years in prison for a burglary that resulted in the death of an off-duty officer.

  1. LOL! I think he is “Big Pussy”. Also, his death was a shooting on Tony’s boat followed by a wrapping in garbage bags, weighted with chains and dumped into the Atlantic. Maybe teh show spills into his daily life with the dumping and violence. he was whacked for FBI wiretapping collaberation.

  2. Professor,

    The character was actually “Big Pussy”, I wouldn’t normally correct something like this, but do so in this case only to spare the other readers of the too late realization that googling that name to check if your hunch is correct is a BAD idea.

    I just hope nobody was looking over my shoulder in the law library.
