As Gino DiMatteo entered the Department 7 courtroom during a recess at about 2 p.m. Friday, a District Attorney’s investigator told him they had to talk, took his arm and shuffled him over to a corner of the courtroom between the audience seats and the bar. He then asked DiMatteo to put his arms behind his back, as he was being arrested on a federal warrant.
