Mr. Chainz was right, THE FEDS IS WATCHIN…
Looking for a quick come up, Thomas Paculis thought it’d be a good idea to capitalize off the troubles of Paula Deen through blackmail, asking the defamed celebrity cook for $250,000 or he’d reveal some damaging information. Unfortunately for Paculis, blackmail is not only frowned upon but illegal, and thus, he was arrested. No money for you.
Via NY Daily News:
The FBI busted Thomas Paculis in upstate New York on Friday on charges he tried to extort Deen, the scandal-scarred former Food Network superstar — for $250,000. Paculis, 62, cooked his own goose when he emailed Deen’s lawyer and demanded cash in exchange for keeping quiet about “true and damning” statements involving the television icon “using the N-word in her business practices,” according to court papers.
“I am about to go public with statements refuting your (client’s) statements about using the ‘N’ word in her business practices at Lady and Son’s,” Paculis wrote June 24, according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in federal court in Savannah, Ga.
