The retired-on-disability ex-cop-turned-cyber pimp has also been moonlighting as the CEO of the largest porn shop on the East Coast, The Post has learned.

State records show that Michael Rizzi — the 44-year-old NYPD veteran busted for running a massive online prostitution ring — also runs Nitecap Megastore & Smoke Shop, a “professional adult wonderland” on Staten Island that claims to be “the cleanest dirty store in New York.”

It is the largest supplier of porn and adult toys on the entire East Coast and is located in the shadow of the Goethals Bridge at 690 Gulf Ave.

On Wednesday — and for the second time this week — Rizzi was released on a $100,000 bond after being arraigned in Brooklyn Supreme Court. He posted bond a day earlier in federal court, but was immediately taken back into custody after an unloaded gun was found during a raid on his home.

Meanwhile, sources recalled today how Rizzi “married into the mob” and quickly became one of their henchmen.

“He’s a disgrace to the badge,” a source said. “He’s a bigtime player in the Gambinos. He’s not just a hanger-on.”

The source remembered how Rizzi and his wife’s family, the Julianos, once scared a burglar working for the Colombos so bad, he skipped town.

Despite the charges against him, sources said the nine-year NYPD vet will not lose his disability pension if convicted. He is scheduled to appear back in court on Friday.
