A gangster-turned-FBI informant whose exploits were the basis of the 1990 Martin Scorsese mob film "Goodfellas" says his struggles with alcohol are to blame for his weekend arrest after a drunken disturbance at a hotel.

Police hauled 66-year-old Henry Hill, of Topanga, Calif., away in handcuffs Sunday after the dustup in a Drury Inn lobby in Fairview Heights, Ill. He was in the St. Louis area for a showing of his artwork and to sign autographs at a nearby Larry Flynt strip club.

Hill is free on bond on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He told The Associated Press on Tuesday he doesn't remember much about the weekend flare-up at the Drury.

Fairview Heights police Sgt. Steve Evans says he had no immediate details about Hill's arrest.
