A Beverly Hills private investigator who allegedly hired two men to assault John Wayne's daughter and her companion has been arrested in Switzerland. O. Daniel Gal, 32, was arrested by Swiss police earlier this week on a provisional warrant issued by Interpol, the international police agency. Newport Beach authorities said Gal would be brought back to California within 60 days to face local charges of criminal conspiracy. Gal is the fourth and final person to be arrested in the Oct. 3 assault on Aissa Wayne and financier Roger Luby at Luby's Newport Beach estate.

Gionis, a prosecutor disclosed Monday. Deputy Dist. Atty. Christopher J. Evans emphasized that law enforcement officials have made "no offers, no deals, no nothing" to O.

One of the men accused of assaulting Aissa Wayne and her former financier boyfriend has agreed to testify that Wayne's ex-husband, Pomona surgeon Thomas A. Gionis, paid money to have the Oct. 3 attack carried out, a prosecutor revealed in court Monday. Jeffrey Kendall Bouey is to be called to the witness stand today in the second day of a preliminary hearing into whether Gionis, 35, should be bound over for trial on charges that he masterminded the attack against Wayne, 32, and Roger W. Luby, 53, at Luby's Newport Beach estate.

Anastasia Pilar Gionis, the 2-year-old girl at the center of the custody battle between Aissa Wayne and Thomas Gionis, on Thursday was assigned her own lawyer to protect her interests. Superior Court Judge Ronald E. Owen also named an independent psychologist to try to sort out wildly conflicting reports about the child's current well-being and agreed to reopen her parents' bitter custody hearing in light of recent criminal charges against Gionis. Owen, who earlier this year gave Gionis custody of the child, said the criminal charges against the Pomona surgeon in connection with last October's attack on Wayne raise "some strong suspicion that the doctor's moral character is not what is should be."

The son of Greek immigrants, Thomas Anastasios Gionis, now accused of masterminding a brutal attack on John Wayne's daughter and her companion, graduated at age 22 from medical school and eventually built a flourishing practice and a string of clinics from Palm Springs to Beverly Hills. Yet Gionis, friends and associates said, also has an explosive temper, an acid tongue and an insistence on getting his own way.
