Raffaello Follieri did not take his arrest yesterday for wire fraud and money laundering well. According to People, he wasn’t looking too good during his hearing in Manhattan federal court:
Dressed down in jeans, a royal blue sweater over a white collared shirt and disheveled hair — a far cry from his usual dapper look in crisp Italian suits.
Well, to be fair, you can’t blame him for not wearing the evidence. But police also said that when Follieri was arrested he had opiates in his system, and during the hearing he acted weird, chuckling and making faces. Then, immediately afterward he collapsed and in fact spent last night in custody in the hospital. His bail was set at $21 million — “one of the stiffest bail packages I have ever seen,” his lawyer told reporters. “We are going to do everything we can to meet it.” Good luck with that. We sort of doubt Follieri has any friends willing to throw millions at him these days, and we sure hope his ex-girlfriend Anne Hathaway is smart enough not to.
