Madoff Picks Up Prison Cred in Tussle

Bernie Madoff got into a prison-yard tussle with a fellow inmate over -- of all things -- the stock market, eyewitnesses told NyPo.

Madoff, serving 150 years at the Butner, NC, federal prison, was heard last week getting into a heated debate over the state of the market with another senior-citizen jailbird.

The shouting match got so heated that the inmate pushed Madoff, who shoved back harder with both hands, causing his attacker to stumble, according to NyPo.

As the attacker tried to stand up straight, Madoff hovered over him red-faced and glaring, eyewitnesses said.

The stunned attacker went chicken and took off -- allowing Madoff to collect some "cred" among his fellow prisoners.

"I didn't think Bernie had it in him. He got the best of him; he was really aggressive, and the other guy was in shock that he fought back," an inmate said.


  1. Very good to hear that Madoff is taking care of himself in the box. I'd like to get his input on sugar futures.

    I wonder how long he'll last considering that there are many powerful people who lost money and may be seeking vengeance.
