Ralph Cifaretto had recently made a disparaging joke regarding Johnny's obese wife Ginny. Johnny and Donny make eye contact as Donny is laughing and amusingly cutting up with the bartender. Since Johnny knows Donny works for Ralph and assumes he is laughing and conversing about the joke Ralph made about Ginny, Johnny begins to grow angry. He then follows Donny outside the bar to his car. Donny is then attacked and beaten unconscious by Johnny. After the intense beating, Johnny proceeds to urinate on Donny. Donny is known to have received some nerve damage from the beating and has not been seen since. Donny was unmarried and had to take care of his mother.
