STROUDSBURG, Pa. – "Goodfellas" actor Paul Sorvino pulled a gun on his daughter's ex-boyfriend after the man pounded on her hotel door and made threats, the daughter testified.
"He got in my father's face and said, 'Go ahead, Paul, shoot, I ain't done nothing wrong,"' Amanda Sorvino, 36, told a judge Tuesday. The judge granted her request for a protection-from-abuse order against the 21-year-old, Daniel Snee.
Amanda Sorvino testified the man threatened to kill her at a Vermont hotel Jan. 3. She said she locked herself in the bathroom and called both police and her father. Her 67-year-old father showed up before police, she said. When police arrived, the young man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
Sorvino said she met the man when he was hired to care for her horses and they began dating, but the relationship soured. She said he then began threatening her and her father "if he ever got in the way."
Sorvino testified that although the threat happened in another state, she wanted a court order that would protect her at another home she has in Pennsylvania. The order lasts for three years.
Paul Sorvino did not accompany his daughter to court Tuesday, the Pocono Record newspaper reported.
Snee is in jail in Vermont, and it was not clear if he has a lawyer.
