'Goodfellas' Actor Pulled Gun on Daughter's Ex
In court on Tuesday, Jan. 16, Sorvino's daughter Amanda testified that the actor had pulled a gun on her ex-boyfriend during an incident earlier just after the new year, report news sources.
Amanda Sorvino, 36, says that she once dated Daniel Snee, 21, a man who was hired to care for her horses, but when the relationship ended, he began to threaten her and her father. On Jan. 3, Snee threatened to kill her at a Vermont hotel, where she locked herself in the bathroom and called for help. Her father arrived ahead of the police and pulled out a gun.
"He got in my father's face and said, 'Go ahead, Paul, shoot, I ain't done nothing wrong,'" testified Amanda Sorvino.
The police arrived in time to arrest Snee and charge him with disorderly conduct. He is currently jailed in Vermont. Amanda Sorvino was granted a protection-from-abuse order against him that lasts for three years.
