Soccer: Balotelli has run-in with traffic police
Tempestuous Italy striker angry about parking fine07 February, 13:44
The 22-year-old AC Milan striker was reportedly asked to move his car from a no-parking zone by the traffic police, but cheekily moved it to another off-limits area instead of putting it in a car park.
When the officers then decided to give Balotelli a ticket, the row got so bad-tempered that members of another police force, the Carabinieri, came to support the traffic police.
The officers then ran checks and Balotelli was fined for not having his insurance document with him and not putting his insurance ticket on show.
But, in the end, he was not given a parking fine.
The player, who played in Italy's 1-1 draw in the Netherlands on Wednesday and scored a double to help Milan beat Udinese 2-1 in his debut with the Serie A giants on Sunday, was at the airport to pick up some friends.
