Patti Won't Talk to Media After Being Arrested for Battery Yesterday

One day after he was arrested for misdemeanor battery, the PNJ tried to talk to Frank Patti about getting arrested for punching one of his customers in the throat after he was insulted by the patron. The Joe Patti’s Seafood owner would not talk to the press because his lawyer had advised him against doing so. He did add that he wanted to tell his side of the story, but said he didn’t want to “go against my attorney”.

Patti was arrested for punching Robert Lavett who called Patti an "old man" and called his family “crooks”. Lavett went on the insult tirade after he became irritated that Patti would question him about the credit card which didn’t have Lavett’s name on it. The car was in his mother’s name; she had just dropped him off at the fish market and was waiting in the car.

Patti told police he didn’t punch Lavett because the customer insulted him; He punched the customer because he said Lavett made a threatening motion towards him. Today, the PNJ interviewed Lavett and he flatly denies that he tried to lunge at Patti.

Does everyone think Patti will serve time for violating the terms of his parole?
