John Gotti arrives at Manhattan Supreme Court where he was on trial on charges of conspiracy and assault for the shooting of a carpenter's union official. As head of the Gambino crime family in the late s and early s, he cut a colorful and extremely public figure not just in New York City but across the nation. Tabloid newspapers called him the Teflon Don for his seeming ability to avoid prosecution. He was also known as the Dapper Don, due to his immaculate style, which consisted of double-breasted Italian suits from Brioni, hand-painted silk ties and his halo of perfectly coiffed hair. In public, Gotti cut an amiable figure and played to the cameras. In private, he was a tyrant and a narcissist with a hair-trigger temper, according to testimony from former mobsters and secretly recorded tapes that ultimately placed him behind bars for the remainder of his life. In his formative years, Gotti learned a life of crime by running errands for Carmine Fatico, a capo in the early days of the Gambino crime family.
