Bernard Madoff Gets Into Tussle In Prison
Bernard Madoff in a fight?
Against who? The Feds? Angry investors?
The New York Post is reporting that the disgraced Madoff recently got into a fight (not really a fight, more like a minor dust-up) at the Butler, NC, federal prison where he will remain for the rest of his life.
According to the article, Madoff and an older gentleman (the article called Madoff's opponent a "senior citizen") got into a heated debate about the current state of the stock market.
The argument apparently got very heated, with the "senior citizen" deciding to shove Madoff.
Madoff retaliated by shoving back as hard as he could, sending the senior to the ground.
Madoff then stood over his fallen adversary, clearly ready to trade blows if need be. The "senior citizen" stood up and ran off, much to the disappointment of fellow inmates who were clearly hoping for a senior citizen slugfest.
The bad blood between the two apparently didn't last for very long - the two were seen hanging out the next day.
