A Brooklyn man has been busted for allegedly running a murderous street and prison gang with factions that use famous fashion labels as their nicknames.

William Seeley was nabbed by FBI agents who were tailing his car and arrested him when he got out in Manhattan, according to the feds.

He’s been held without bail as a potential danger to the community, court records show, and is due in Manhattan federal court on Friday.

Seeley, who has nicknames that include “Pop Da Don,” is accused of running the “Mad Stone Bloods,” which the feds say operates in states stretching from Connecticut to Texas.

A 27-count indictment says Seeley is the gang’s “global chairman,” with “absolute authoritarian rule over all MSB members and activities nationwide.”

In addition to “sole authority to open or close entire MSB ‘hoods’ throughout the country,” Seeley’s power allegedly includes the ability to “order or authorize criminal activity, including murders, assaults, robberies, narcotics trafficking and firearms offenses.”

Court papers say the gang comprises 10 “subgroups” with names including “Mad Stone Gangsters,” “Mad Stone Henchmen” and “Mad Stone Kartel.”

The subgroups also have nicknames based on “high end clothing lines,” court papers say, with the Gangsters also known as “Prada,” the Henchmen as “Tom Ford” and the Kartel as “Fendi.”

The gang — which has clashed with the Bloods and MS-13 — even has an all-female faction, the “Mad Stone Divas” or “Chanel,” according to the feds.

Seeley, who was arrested around 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 1, is among eight defendants who were indicted in Virginia federal court on racketeering conspiracy, attempted murder, assault and other charges.

He’s specifically accused of scheming with three subordinates to sell heroin, crack and other drugs from 2010 through December 2016, and of conspiring in unspecified “acts involving” murder and robbery.

Seeley’s court-appointed defense lawyer didn’t return a request for comment.
