    Frank Sinatra Mugshot

    In 1938, a 23-year-old Sinatra was arrested on charges of seduction and adultery - charges were later dismissed in New Jersey. The world found out later just how smooth Ol' Blue Eyes could be.

    From the FBI's 1,300-page file on Frank Sinatra:

    'FRANK SINATRA, Arrest 42799, Bergen County Sheriff's Office, Hackensack, New Jersey was arrested on November 26, 1938 charged with Seduction. Disposition was marked, 'Dismissed.'.

    FRANK SINATRA, Arrest 42977, was arrested on December 22, 1938, charged with Adultery.'

    Neither of the acts with which Sinatra was charged is against the law today, but his initial charge in 1938 stated that: 'On the second and ninth days of November 1938 at the Borough of Lodi' and 'under the promise of marriage' Sinatra 'did then and there have sexual intercourse with the said complainant, who was then and there a single female of good repute.' This, the charge stated, was 'contrary and in violation of the revised statute of 1937.'

    The report noted that Sinatra was released on $1,500 bond and that the complaint was withdrawn when it was determined that the woman involved was married. A complaint of adultery was substituted, with Sinatra's bond being lowered to $500. That charge, too, was dismissed.

      This is the picture of Frank that was hanging in the back room of the Bada Bing.

      Yes ! That's why I've put it here… :o)

      We even have a Bada Bing! in Bordeaux.

      To be honest, I think it's a poster for a brand of shoes or something like that. ;o) But it's definitely the same name and logo and it can't be a coincidence.

      I love it that there is a 'Bing' in Bordeaux. Do you have a Satriale's too?

      Oh we have a very good, very Italian restaurant "Peppone", but no Satriale, unfortunately…
