PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ The son of the late Rhode Island mobster Frank ``Bobo'' Marrapese Jr. has filed a lawsuit alleging he was falsely imprisoned on a warrant for his father.
The Providence Journal reports that 41-year-old Frank Marrapese III is suing Cranston police, the state prison and former Attorney General Peter Kilmartin over his February 2017 arrest.
Marrapese says in his lawsuit he was held for a weekend after a traffic stop over tinted car windows.
He says the arrest caused ``mental duress, fear of police, going to jail for breathing.''
Marrapese is seeking unspecified damages.
Cranston Police Col. Michael Winquist says he was unaware of the lawsuit and declined to comment.
A spokeswoman for the attorney general's office did not respond to a request for comment.
