According to a New Orleans police report, Carlos Marcello’s wife, Jackie, imposed an 8:00 p.m. curfew on the boss of the New Orleans mafia.

On the first night of the curfew, Carlos arrived home one-half hour late. The Marcello’s daughter was swimming in their pool with some friends. Jackie ordered the girls into the house but barred the door to Carlos.

Enraged, Carlos obtained a sledgehammer from the garage intending to break down the door. Jackie then took a gun and pointed it out of a second story window and ordered Carlos off the property until he could respect the curfew.
