New Jersey man admits harassing comedian Jim Breuer
A northern New Jersey pizzeria owner has admitted posting disparaging remarks online about comedian Jim Breuer and his family.
Giuseppe Ionfrida on Monday pleaded guilty to harassment.
Under questioning by his lawyer, the 47-year-old Mine Hill resident admitted writing disparaging remarks that alleged Breuer used drugs and mentioned his juvenile daughters.
Under terms of a plea agreement, the prosecution will recommend that Ionfrida be sentenced in December to five years probation, attend psychological therapy and anger management, and forfeit any firearms.
The Daily Record of Parsippany (http://dailyre.co/1kBTAGa ) reports the Randolph pizzeria owner used to live near the performer in Chester Township and they were friends.
The friendship soured when Ionfrida learned the stand-up comic had poked fun at him on a national radio show.
