Fabian Basabe—the well-born philanthropist and television star—has seen the charges he filed against Bungalow 8 doorman Armin Amiri dropped by the Manhattan DA's office. But Basabe, being the socialroach that he is, will not be deterred—he's filing a civil suit for $1 million in "punitive and compensatory damages." Amiri's thoughtful response was, "Good luck. I guess this is what happens when you don't have a job - you have to create something to do." Or create a way to find some cash, since working 9 to 5 doesn't seem to be his cup of tea.
