Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo and her husband Lee D’Avanzo were arrested on Thursday after an NYPD raid, according to E! News. The couple allegedly had weapons, guns and drugs found in their home in Staten Island, New York. Drita is well-known for starring on the VH1 reality show hit, Mob Wives, from its premiere in 2011 until the finale in 2016 after six seasons. She also appeared on Angela ‘Big Ang’ Raiola’s spinoff series, Big Ang.
Drita and Lee were arraigned on Friday and she was released on bail of $15,000. According to reports, Lee was also in custody on a fugitive warrant from a separate case in New Jersey, a spokesperson for the Staten Island District Attorney’s Office told E! News. They are both set to appear in court at the end of January.
The weapons and drugs that were found in their home include: two loaded firearms, marijuana, 120 hydrocodone/ acetaminophen pills and 22 Xanax pills – according to the NYPD. According to E! News, “The D’Avanzos were charged with seven felonies in total, six misdemeanors and three violations, including criminal possession of a criminal substance, possession of a weapon, criminal possession of marijuana greater than 16 ounces and greater than 8 ounces, two criminal counts of possession of narcotics, and acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17—because pot was found in areas accessible to the couple’s 12-year-old daughter, according to the criminal complaint.”
The NYPD had received community tips and concerns about activities at the home, according to reports by The Staten Island Advance. As seen on Mob Wives, Lee had been away and served time in prison for bank robberies. Drita was arrested back in 2016 for punching a woman in Staten Island, but the case was later dropped.
Woah! This is crazy. I like Drita and I hope that everything is okay. I am sure Drita will tell her side when things have calmed down. In the meantime, I hope she is able to enjoy the holidays with her daughters. I haven’t heard anything about the confirmed Mob Wives reboot in awhile, I wonder if it will ever happen? Several cast members have teased it on-and-off for the past two years. I’d love for Mob Wives to return!
Thoughts on this recent report? Thoughts on Mob Wives? Will there ever be a reboot? Will Drita join the cast if the reboot happens? Sound off below!
