Why cant we all get along!! Geez they were just doing a little wife swaping and a fight broke out.

The booms aren't the only things that swing at Nu-Way Crane.

The allegedly crooked boss of the embattled crane company turned a suburban swingers club into an orgy of violence after going there with his wife - and stumbling upon the man he believes ratted him out to city investigators, police said.

Michael Sackaris, 48, owner of Nu-Way, attacked his former No. 2, Daniel Mooney, with pepper spray and a baton as their shocked wives looked on, cops said.

Sackaris now faces a felony charge of intimidating a witness and a misdemeanor menacing rap for the attempted assault at Roberto's Lounge - a Commack hot spot billed as the "Sexiest Night Club in Long Island."

Sackaris' bust comes after he made headlines in June for allegedly bribing a chief city crane inspector with $10,000 to get his workers operator licenses.

The alleged bribery surfaced after two deadly East Side crane collapses earlier this year exposed a wide range of incompetence and corruption in the industry and Buildings Department.

Sackaris was partying with his wife Aug. 16 at Roberto's Lounge when the alleged attack occurred, according to a Suffolk County Police Department report.

Most Saturdays, the club hosts swingers' soirees.

Sackaris and his wife were in the bar when Mooney, who turned informant for the city Department of Investigation, arrived after 11 p.m.

"They were staring at us, making me and my wife very uncomfortable," Mooney, 45, said in his statement to cops. "I wanted to get out of there before any trouble started.

"When I passed Michael, he purposely backed into me ... I said something like,' F --- you, what are you doing?' He said,'You started this s--- and I'm going to finish it now,' " Mooney told cops.

He bolted to his car, with Sackaris in pursuit, allegedly squirting pepper spray and wielding a baton.

"He is screaming at me that he is going to kill me, that I am a dead man," Mooney said.

"He is yelling at me, saying that I am a rat."

Mooney and his wife fled, and he later filed a report with cops.

Reached by telephone, Mooney, who left Nu-Way in 2002, confirmed the account.

Through his lawyer, Sackaris denied the charges and said he'll be proven innocent at trial.
