GREENSBURG, Pa. – State police today arrested Two-Ton Tony Galento, former heavyweight boxer, on an assault-and-battery charge.
The charge was filed by Bill Johnson, a wrestling promoter in nearby McKeesport. Johnson said Galento knocked out four of his teeth after a wrestling show last night in an altercation over a split of the proceeds.
Johnson later dropped the charges when Galento agreed to pay him $250 for hospital bills.
The 41-year-old Orange, N.J., saloon keeper appeared on a wrestling card at McKeesport.
