Last week we heard that Mob Wives star Renee Graziano‘s son, AJ, had been arrested. Knowing what we know about AJ, who has said on-camera that he has no desire to be a part of “the life” and he’s always appeared to stay out of trouble, we wondered what the real story was, so we went right to the source. TMZ has reported that AJ and his girlfriend happened to drive past two girls a few weeks ago who were involved in a fight, and he pulled over to break them up. Last Wednesday, he was arrested for hitting one of the girls.
On Friday, we actually hung out for a bit with Renee to find out what the story was, and while she was fairly quiet on the subject, she was adamant that AJ will be proven innocent. “My son did nothing wrong, except try to do the right thing,” she told us, saying that any allegations against him are “untrue.” Similarly, AJ’s rep told TMZ that the arrest was just the result of the girl’s attempt to defame him. “Beyond engaging in violent behavior,” the rep said, “it speaks very poorly of this girl’s character that she would blatantly lie in an attempt to defame AJ’s name. The truth will come out and we feel justice will be served.”
