About Al Capone's Real Height

Al Capone was a big guy – tall and broad.

He would not seem that tall from a modern perspective but he was certainly above average for his time -- when the average height of men in the US was 5’8” or so -- he stood around inches taller.

Many websites on the internet list Al's height anywhere from 5’7” to 5’10”.

Al Capone’s arrest record lists his height as 5 feet 11 inches and weight as 250 lb. (113 kg), but his charge sheet reveals his height as 5’10½” and weight as 255 lb. (116 kg).

We are going with his charge sheet height because it seems just more precise. This makes  Al Capone just as tall as someone like Orlando Bloom or Geroge Clooney!
