The son of a star in VH1's "Mob Wives" has been arrested for allegedly dealing cocaine and Oxycodone, authorities said.

Anthony Donofrio, the son of Angela "Big Ang" Raiola, turned himself in on Tuesday, officials said. In an indictment, prosecutors said Donofrio and four others sold drugs in Brooklyn on various occasions between December and last week.

The group is accused of selling more than 350 pills at $20 each during that time.

The drug sales, alleged after an undercover NYPD operation, also included marijuana, prosecutors said.

Donofrio, who lives on Staten Island, faces multiple charges, including second-degree conspiracy and second-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. He is expected in court on Wednesday.

His attorney did not immediately comment.
