Five French citizens nabbed for vandalism to stay in jail

One admits to damaging cars 'while drunk'

(ANSA) - Genoa, May 6 - Five French citizens arrested Saturday in Genoa after they were caught destroying the side view mirrors on six cars are to remain in custody, a court ruled Wednesday.
    The court agreed with prosecutors that the five - who are also accused of resisting arrest - displayed "anti-social behavior" and are at high risk of offending again.
    While all of them denied attacking police officers, one has admitted to damaging the cars.
    "I was drunk," he reportedly said. "I did something stupid".
    As well, Milan prosecutors have obtained DNA samples from the five in order to compare it to traces found on gas masks and black coveralls left behind by violent anti-Expo demonstrators in Milan on May 1.
