Lawyer of Gotti family says surname being used against them in assault case from high-school basketball game

Fox News Flash top sports headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com.

Kimberly and Gianna Gotti allegedly got into a brawl at a high-school basketball game, but the mother-daughter duo want the case dropped.

The daughter and granddaughter of notorious mob boss John Gotti were alleged to have cursed at students during the game. The mob boss' grandson was playing for Oyster Bay High School in nearby Locust Valley on Long Island.

The Gottis shot down a plea that they would exchange assault charges in exchange for 12 weeks of anger management and an order of protection for the victim.

However, their lawyer is saying that their surname and family history are being used against them.

"It was pointed out by the athletic director, that was John Gotti, and the victim was saying she was attacked by two females," the Gottis' lawyer, Gerard Michael Mattone, said Wednesday, per Newsday.

"So, the name Gotti was thrown around. The Gotti girls, the mom and the daughter, were arrested. The victim only identified my clients once they were arrested walking out of the gym in handcuffs."

The Gottis were also accused of using homophobic slurs, which they have denied.

John Gotti Jr. said the woman "assaulted my wife first," and Mattone claimed the woman had made fun of Kimberly's son.
