UPDATE: Bail set at $1 million, but bail revoked on an OUI charge out of Winchendon, DA's office reports.
Spinelli, 44, was arrested this afternoon in Revere and faces arraignment on a charge of armed assault with intent to murder, police say, adding his victim is now expected to survive.
Spinelli was once a star quarterback at Leominster High School who says his life spiraled out of control after he was molested at Penn State in 1988 by football coach Jerry Sandusky. Spinelli was 16 at the time.
In 2002, Spinelli pleaded guilty to manslaughter for a fatal beating in Fitchburg.
In August of this year, a Pennsylvania appeals court dismissed Spinelli's attempt to bring criminal charges against Sandusky because the statute of limitations for the alleged molestation had expired.
