Following a roof top chase, Frank Nitti has been caught by Ness who, after reading him his mirandas, is leading him towards the stairs.
Nitti is confident that his lawyer can get him off of any charge and chooses to mock Malone (q.v.), the deceased partner of Ness who was killled by Nitti earlier in the film. The line "He died screaming like a stuck Irish pig" is enough to unbalance Ness and the audience is treated to the full range of Costner's acting prowess (which equates to one furrowed brow) before he route marches Nitti off the side of the courthouse roof.
Nitti, in freefall, is flapping wildly trying to slow his descent. He need not have bothered, as the roof of a car stops him quite abruptly.
