We brought you news of the apparent arrest in Denver of someone named Perazzi the other day based on a story at examiner.com. While TTAG’s bog post pointed out that the gentleman named in the story was deceased, it turns out that whole story was a fabrication. Allegedly. The Perazzi people smell a rat and are ready to lawyer up. Here’s their statement (typos and all) posted a few hours ago on their Facebook page . . .
With reference to press reports concerning Daniele Perazzi’s alleged unlawful arrest for terrorism last Saturday in Denver (Colorado), we state that the incident is devoid of any foundation and the news is completely fabricated. Daniele Perazzi (founder of Perazzi SpA) died last year, and his son Mauro was not in the United States last Saturday.
The Perazzis are not involved in any wrongdoing in any way, shape or form and, to our best knowledge, are not under investigation or scrutiny nor are targets of criminal proceedings. It is difficoult to think that this news are a mistake; there are reasons to believe that somebody who has interests against the company is dissaminating false informations. The Perazzi Company, contrarily to what has been reported, is very familiar with the US legislation on weapons, due to its extensive and successful presence in the American market. Perazzi has allready given mandate to its lawyers to promote criminal and civil action with the purpose to protect the brand and company’s reputation and its activities conducted also in the United States.
