Al Capone was born in New York from an Italian family. His mother migrated to the US in the late 1800's. When Capone was in school, he had a rough time in class. He also did not get along with any of his teachers. When he was 14 years old, he got into a fist fight with one of his teachers and got expelled soon after. Ever since he got expelled, he never joined any other school and dropped out. He meet some members of local street gangs and joined one of them. That gang later introduced him to organized crime and led him to go to Chicago.
