A Lamborghini driver who was shot throughout a street rage incident on the Upper West Side Monday evening was nabbed years in the past within the alleged kidnapping of an unique automobile seller who claimed he was Alex Rodriguez’s nephew, a high-ranking police supply informed The Post.
Lamin Vucetovic, 37, was blasted in his torso when a darkish sedan pulled up alongside his Lamborghini SUV at about 10 p.m. following the heated dispute on the street, the supply mentioned.
Vucetovic, who was close to the intersection of West 72nd Street and Columbus Avenue on the time, was not critically injured.
In 2018, he made headlines for allegedly kidnapping Norberto Susini and holding the supposed “nephew” of the previous New York Yankees slugger for ransom over a car-deal-gone dangerous, The Post beforehand reported.
Susini, who offered unique automobiles on the time, informed police he was held in opposition to his will at a Midtown lodge by Vucetovic and one other man, Anthony Gilkes, after Vucetovic pumped the brakes on a deal for a $600,000 Lambo.
Vucetovic allegedly requested that his deposit for the new wheels be returned — after which he and Gilkes demanded $35,000, in addition to the automobile, from Susini’s associates.
They known as police.
Susini informed cops that he was the nephew of the three-time American League MVP — however an A-Rod spokesman on the time mentioned Susini was the son of Rodriguez’s half-brother Joe’s late girlfriend.
It’s unclear how Vucetovic’s kidnapping case shook out — because the case is sealed, sources mentioned.
