He had arrived with a television crew to shoot a special one on the shop. His story: "I was punched in the face, they ripped my jacket and sweater, they kept chasing me, I fell into a cliff ..."
"They're killing Corona, they're killing him!" At 10:30 pm on Monday, a carabinieri patrol traveled via Sant'Arialdo, about fifty meters from the high-speed train station, engaged in checks on the perimeter of the Rogoredo drug forest. At the Pontinia overpass there were some Land Rover parked and surrounded by toxic. The carabinieri have thought - it has already happened - a trap against motorists to rob them. But the toxic ones were waiting for someone to ask for help. A man raised his arms and started screaming, telling that Fabrizio Corona had been attacked by pusher.
Carabinieri entered and found the 44-year-old without a shirt or jacket, lying on the ground, with a slight wound to his face. They accompanied him outside and called an ambulance, which he refused. It is not serious but according to his version, which at one o'clock he had not yet wanted to put on record, he risked killing himself.
This is the chronicle that Corona has made to Corriere in the darkness of the forest, accompanied by the same carabinieri and committed to look for the phone, stolen or lost during those long minutes: "I was with the troupe of a company that provides material for transmission" is the Arena "by Giletti. I wanted to document the drug dealing in a place where often the police do not enter ... I had a hidden camera and with a boy I went into the woods. At the top of a hill, I found two people, who immediately went forward with threatening actions ... They recognized me, both the boy and I got punched in the face ... The two gave the alarm and they are appeared dozens of people from nowhere, maybe fifty, maybe thirty ... There were Albanians and North Africans ... I found myself a knife pointed at me ... They ripped my jacket and sweater, they kept chasing me, I'm fallen into a cliff ... ».
The troupe (owner of the Land Rover) was made up of six employees. All unharmed. The carabinieri have listened to them to reconstruct the story in its true entirety. Perhaps Corona had hidden microphones. The pushers have the blade easy and physically control this shame of Milan by the huge turnover. A place of danger, regulation of accounts, deaths. «Yes, I know, I've just finished another" crowned ". But this time I'm not the culprit. "
