Former Mafia hit man Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano, arrested last week for allegedly masterminding a statewide drug ring, was charged in Phoenix with racketeering, conspiracy and money laundering. Arizona state Atty. Gen. Janet Napolitano filed a new complaint, charging Gravano, three family members and 42 others with a total of 181 counts. Gravano, the confessed killer of 19 whose testimony helped put New York crime boss John Gotti behind bars, was being held on a $5-million cash bond.
