A paramedic who rushed James Gandolfini to hospital after the actor suffered a massive heart attack while in Italy has been accused of stealing the star's Rolex, officials said, NBC News reported.

Claudio Bevilacqua, 43, went on trial on Monday for allegedly snatching "The Sopranos" star's $3000 Rolex Submariner watch in June 2013.

It is unclear if the watch was stolen from Gandolfini's room in the Boscolo Exedra Hotel in Rome or whether the actor was wearing it when he collapsed.
