Rucuss staffJanuary 28, 2012

Renee Graziano was rushed to the hospital today.

Hours after the feds busted her father and four other members of the Bonanno crime family, she had a panic attack and collapsed Saturday. TMZ reports she had trouble breathing when she got news that her dad, Anthony “TG” Graziano, had been charged.

A Mob Wives rep confirmed that Renee was admitted to the emergency room and is still getting treatment right now, TMZ reports. Her ex-husband Hector ‘Junior’ Pagan has allegedly become a snitch for the DEA. He reportedly played a role in her father’s arrest.

Renee’s father Anthony was charged with racketeering, extortion, illegal gambling, and conspiracy to distribute marijuana. Anthony Graziano, a Bonanno family captain was already in custody on a prior conviction.

Vincent Badalamenti, identified as a member of the Bonanno crime family administration, Nicholas Santora, a Bonanno family capo, Vito Balsamo, an acting captain, and Anthony Calabrese, a soldier, were also charged on Friday.

All five men entered pleas of not guilty in federal court. Investigators used electronic and physical surveillance and cooperating witnesses in the investigation.

Calabrese and Balsamo were released on $1.5 million bail, which includes home confinement and electronic monitoring. If convicted, each defendant faces up to 20 years in prison.
