How much is $315 worth to you?
For Alexandr Aliev, a 60-year-old Brighton Beach landlady, it was worth going to jail for.
According to the New York Post, Aliev was arrested for shoving a 21-year old renter down a flight of stairs at an apartment building on Brighton Beach Avenue near Brighton 4th Street on June 28. Aliev was enraged when the renter asked for a few more weeks to pay the $315 she owed.
Tragic as the incident may have been, it did prove one time-honored mobster tactic. After suffering a broken leg, the renter came up with the money.
