BOSTON (CBS)–No  bail for a  20-year veteran Massachusetts  state trooper who is waiting to be tried  on extortion charges.

John Analetto  is accused of threatening to kill a  bookie he was working with  in a gambling operation.    Prosecutors say they have   secret video tape of  Analetto  threatening the bookie,  who was  cooperating with the FBI.  

On Friday, a judge ruled  that  Analetto poses a danger to the community. The trooper  was arrested  New Years Eve in his home town of Belmont. 

Analetto’s attorney  maintains  his client’s threatening language was merely tough-guy talk after heavy drinking.
