A New Jersey mobster is back in jail after he was filmed stopping in the middle of a freeway to confront a driver in a road rage attack.
Jerry Balzano, an alleged member of the notorious DeCavalcante crime family, was captured on dashcam footage cursing and threatening the other driver as the victim's terrified wife called 911.
The mobster, who was out on supervised release for racketeering conspiracy, now faces charges for violating his release and has been detained in jail.
Dash cam footage, obtained by New York Daily News, shows Balzano slamming on the breaks, forcing the victims to come to a stop behind him on what appears to be the New York State Route 17.
He is then seen climbing out of his car, and striding up to the driver's side window, out of view of the camera.
'You want to play f***ing games, you little c***sucker?,' Balzano is heard asking aggressively. 'You wanna play f***ing games? I'll kick your f***ing head in you dirty scumbag.'
'You want to cut me off like a tough guy?' he adds.
The driver shouts for his wife to call 911 who makes a frantic call for help.

'Someone is hitting my husband!' she says, before a loud thud is heard. 'Oh my gosh!'
'Get out the f***ing car,' Balzano demanded.
At that point, another motorist who had stopped after seeing the confrontation intervened, pulling Balzano aside and walking him back to his car.
The 54-year-old then got back inside his car and sped off while his victim, whose wife was still on the phone to 911, was heard saying 'I'm not alright, he hit me.'
Authorities say Balzano also did not possess a valid license to drive a car.
Footage of the incident was played before a judge last week who ordered that Balzano should be detained on March 8.
He faces a violation of supervised release hearing next month.
The original charges were for a 2011 conviction for racketeering involving contraband cigarettes and the theft of a $15,000 tax refund check. He was among 100 mobsters and mob associates charged that year.
This is the second time Balzano has violated his release after serving two years in jail. The first violation was after he admitted having a firearm and ammunition.
