Henry Hill is in trouble with the law again

CNN: 'GoodFellas' inspiration charged with drug possession
NORTH PLATTE, Nebraska (AP) -- Former mobster-turned-chef Henry Hill, whose gangland experiences inspired the movie "GoodFellas," has been charged with felony drug possession.

Police said Hill's luggage was searched on August 15 at the North Platte Regional Airport and methamphetamine and cocaine was found.

On Friday, Lincoln County Judge Kent Florum sent him to district court on a felony charge of drug possession.

Hill, portrayed by Ray Liotta in "GoodFellas," had sought refuge in the witness protection program after agreeing to testify against his former mob bosses from New York.

However, he left the witness protection program and now lives in North Platte with his wife, who is from the area. He has been working as a chef and helping establish an Italian restaurant.
