John Gotti Jr

female juror in the John “Junior” Gotti trial was excused from the panel this afternoon — just a week after she told the judge she was afraid that a car accident was tied to the mob trial

Juror No. 3 — identified only as a 55-year-old Manhattan secretary — was nearly hit by a car eight days ago.

Last week, she told the judge that the incident left her scared.

Although she remained on the jury following a hearing, Manhattan Federal Judge Kevin Castel said this afternoon that he decided to let her go after re-reading her account over the long weekend.
