Natoli is an operator of the Critical Emergency Response Team that stormed Litchfield Penitentiary at the end of Season Five. He is responsible for the death of Piscatella. He is portrayed by Josh Green.

The real name of the Critical Emergency Response Team is the BOP Special Operations Response Team - (SORT)


Natoli is shown to be very inexperienced. He acts impulsively before thinking about his actions.


Season Five[]

He is seen during the attempt to control the riot, accompanied by his fellow CERT team members. Alana Dwight stands up to him and he does not take it well. He aims his Pepperball gun at her. He is reprimanded by Herrmann. Even though they are armed with Pepper Ball ammunition, it is still possible to kill someone at close range. Herrmann advises Natoli that if he wants to hurt the inmates, to taser or mace them. Dwight thanks him for not shooting her. He punches her in the cheek, knocking her down.

When the body of Humphrey is found in the janitors' closet, Herrmann orders his operators to pacify the prison by any means necessary. Natoli enthusiastically asks if that means they can use the pepper bullets now, and Herrmann tells him to shut up.

Later on, their formation advances on the swimming pool. Piscatella emerges from a doorway. Natoli accidentally shoots him. Fatally.

In a juxtaposition to Bayley when he inadvertently murdered Poussey Washington in Season Four, the young, inexperienced officer's eyes fill with tears. Terrified, he states that he was aiming at the roof, but Piscatella was too tall. ("Storm-y Weather")


Enemies (because of the immaturity of his conscious mind)[]

  • Alana Dwight (Because of his immaturity, he pointed the gun at her. But later deliberately beaten)
  • Desi Piscatella (Accidentally killed because he was too big and couldn't be seen clearly in the smoke)
