Vincent 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.
