Donald D. Gaudio Jr. has again been placed on unpaid administrative leave from his job as deputy clerk and guardianship investigator with the Mahoning County Probate Court.
Judge Mark Belinky of the probate court put Gaudio on leave, effective immediately, in a Thursday afternoon judgment entry.
The leave is effective pending completion of a county sheriff’s department investigation of a verbal altercation, in which Gaudio, 49, of Boardman, allegedly threatened to punch Samuel M. Moffie, a 51-year-old Boardman businessman, in the face.
The altercation occurred just before the 1 p.m. Wednesday swearing-in ceremony for Daniel R. Yemma as county treasurer in the county courthouse rotunda.
