Actually he's not. He was interviewed in the street the day after the incident. He mentioned how he had done time, but it was a frame-up according to him.

It was a short interview and he used most of it up decrying the cops and saying he was just a normal guy with no links to the mob, not any mention of his son that I recall.
There were many street interviews with supporters of the son, who see him as a hero, and said to a man that were it not for him controlling his acolytes there would have been a mass fight on the pitch, ergo we should all be thanking him. It was quite obvious they were elated by how much attention they were getting, how they mattered somehow.

Clannish, he was their guy...

Then one of them decided the reporter was not ok and rushed him, leaving him with a black eye. All filmed, and the reporter and crew beat a hasty retreat.

They own whole quarters of Naples's slums.
