Embattled U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm, who is under federal indictment, retained his alter ego – Mikey Suits – from when he was working undercover for the FBI.

While prosecutors were seeking a court order to track the Staten Island Republican’s cell phone, they discovered that Grimm kept a cell phone registered to “Michael Garibaldi of Centurian Consulting,”  the New York Daily News reports.

Grimm even used the number as his primary phone up until at least last year.

Grimm is accused of tax evasion and employing undocumented immigrants at his health food restaurant in New York.

His FBI alias is more than six years old, when he was portraying a shady Wall Street trader with spiffy suits.

U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm, who used to serve as an FBI agent, has been banned from the bureau’s New York field offices, DNAinfo New York reports.

Just in case Grimm shows up, security posted Grimm’s photo at the offices in Lower Manhattan and Queens.

“He is not welcome,” a former top FBI official said.

Another source added: “He is not permitted in our space.”

Grimm, who has denied any wrongdoing, was charged last week in a 20-count federal indictment accusing him of  cheating on his taxes and sheltering $1 million in revenue from a New York City restaurant that he had owned, called “Healthalicious.”

Michael Grimm was considered a hero by many when he won his U.S. House seat in 2010.

But now the lawmaker from Staten Island is trying to prove he’s not a bully ready to come undone, the U.S. News reports.

The former FBI agent who went after Wall Street and was nicknamed by the mob as “Mikey Suits” lashed out so harshly at a reporter following the State of the Union Tuesday.

Grimm threatened to throw reporter Michael Scotto off the “f*****g balcony.”

His time at the FBI was beset with problems, according to the report, which says Grimm “misused authority,” “waved a gun” and made “racially charged comments.”
