Renee Graziano and son AJ Pagan

Last week we reported that Renee Graziano‘s son AJ Pagan was arrested after being involved in a Staten Island street brawl. A witness claimed the seventeen-year-old was actually trying to break up the fight, which included several girls, and was not responsible for the incident. The fight eventually broke apart and police were not called to the scene.

TMZ just released a video of the incident which shows AJ rushing over and pulling one of the girls away from the brawl; he can be heard yelling “Stop!” The video is below. The content is grainy and hard to see, but TMZ identifies AJ.

AJ’s rep maintains he had no involvement in the incident and the teen was driving around Staten Island with his girlfriend when they noticed the girls fighting. AJ stopped to try and diffuse the situation. Afterwards, AJ heard no further news about the incident until this past Wednesday when police arrived at his home to arrest him for allegedly hitting one of the girls in the altercation!

AJ’s rep insists he did not hit anyone and the video clearly demonstrates this. AJ’s rep also insists the girl is trying to exploit AJ because of his connection with Mob Wives! “Beyond engaging in violent behavior, 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.”

Yesterday afternoon Renee Graziano‘s seventeen-year-old son AJ Pagan was arrested in Staten Island for being involved in a “physical altercation”!

Before everyone freaks out, RadarOnline reports that witnesses say the teen wasn’t the instigator and was actually trying to break up the fight when police intervened. “AJ was trying to break up a fight and got caught up in it,” a witness explains. “The next thing you know, the cops arrive and haul him off. It totally wasn’t his fault though, he was actually trying to do a good deed.”

Regardless, Renee was understandably upset and furious! “Just whn u think the sun is gonna shine it pours!!!! #God Give Me A Break lol,” the Mob Wives star tweeted following the event.

Hopefully AJ won’t get into too much trouble and this was all a misunderstanding!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON AJ’S ARREST? WAS HE JUST IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME?

It seems Mob Wives star Renee Graziano is still working hard to break away from the mob princess mentality. This was witnessed on the most recent episode of the show when Renee called her ex-husband Hector Pagan Jr aka Junior for back up after a bar patron insulted her.

In a new interview with the HollywoodLife, Renee opens up about wanting to create a better lifestyle for both her and her 17-year-old son AJ Pagan, adding that AJ has inspired her to want to change. “I wouldn’t want my son to go to jail,” Renee says. “AJ is going in a completely different direction. He’s going to make himself a better life.”

Renee adds that she is tired of seeing AJ go through the heartaches of the mob lifestyle such as watching his father Junior possibly get locked up again. “It breaks me emotionally,” explains Renee. “Watching your child feel pain makes you angry, very angry. It’s probably harder than anything anyone has to do.”

Renee states that raising AJ has given her strength to become more independent. “I lived an empty life,” she admits. Now, “I’m trying to change my life and define myself outside of the way I was brought up.” Renee also adds that her renewed friendship with co-star Karen Gravano is helping her leave her old ways behind.

And speaking of Karen, she is now clearing up the rumor that she was ever in a witness protection program, which was sort of insinuated on the show no? Also talking to the HollywoodLife, Karen reveals that unlike her father Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano — former Gambino family underboss turned FBI informant — she was never in the witness protection program.

“People have it confused,” Karen says. “The way it was, this was my father’s life, it didn’t have to do with me. I didn’t understand why he cooperated, he felt John betrayed him. I thought it wasn’t my life. I was going to stand on my own — that’s why I didn’t go into witness protection.”

Karen then explains why she moved away from New York to Arizona. “I moved to Arizona because my family was there and I thought it was a better way to raise Karina,” Karen says of her daughter. “And my brother [Gerard Gravano] was in prison, so I helped raise his son as well.”

Karen states, “When my father got out of prison, he went into witness protection for eight months and moved to Arizona and joined my family… I was very reluctant to leave New York, [but] I missed my family and was fed up with the lifestyle in NYC. I moved there in 1997.”

As revealed on the show, Karen is now back living in Staten Island to both work on her book and clear her name.

Meanwhile, Mob Wives is proving to be a big hit for the ailing VH1 network. The premiere brought in close to 2 million viewers and the show continues to average a healthy 1.33 million viewers a week.
