Donaghy: Mob threatened my family

NEW YORK (AP) Disgraced ex-NBA referee Tim Donaghy tells "60 Minutes" the mob threatened his family to ensure he provided his insider picks to inform betting on games.

"They basically told me that I needed to give them the picks and if I didn't, that it's a possibility that somebody would go down and visit my wife and kids in Florida," Donaghy said in his first interview since his arrest in the betting scandal, which airs Sunday night on CBS.
