Corona’s documented ties to mobsters and other criminals like Las Vegas strip club owner and known to have under world connections Rick Rizzolo (pictured with his arm around a smiling Carona inside the plush Ritz a Newport Beach Restuarant. The Ritz is owned by Fred Glusman pictured below.                                                                                                                                              

Fred Glusman  

Glusman an Orange County former sheriff's reserves volunteer, and major campaign donor to Ex Sheriff Mike Carona, has been arrested for adlegedly beating up a waitress who worked for him at the Ritz Restaurant in Newport Beach California. Public information officer Sgt. Evan Sailor said, "a police report indicates that Fred Glusman owner of The Ritz restaurant in Newport Beach was charged with “Battery with intent to cause great bodily injury".

The victim Jennifer Kennedy age 30, was treated at Hoag hospital ER for treatment for a tooth having been knocked out, bloody nose and other multiple cuts and bruises. Glusman was arrested and taken to the Newport Beach Police Dept. and was later transferred to Orange County Jail where he was able to post bail in the amount of ,000. Recently the charges were dropped because the waitress refused to testify.

Glusman also owns Pieros in Las Vegas. Its rumored that  Rick Rizzolo and some of his mobster friends frequent  the restaurant and may have hidden interests in the enterprise. Also reported at that meeting con artist Joseph Medawar—two other men Carona made associates—are now serving federal prison sentences. Indeed, Rizzolo--whom FBI agents have recorded dining with La Cosa Nostra hitmen and bosses--was a campaign contributor to our sheriff until the local media exposed the tie. Ex Sheriff
