Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has been quizzed by cops..after breaking into a WOMEN’S PRISON.
The bad-boy Italy star, a £24m summer buy from Inter Milan, figured in a series of controversial on and off-field incidents during his time in Serie A.
Balotelli, sidelined after knee surgery, has now sprung a jailhouse shock in Italy after driving his Mercedes into the grounds of Brescia women’s prison.
The 20-year-old and his brother Enock, 17, were grilled for half an hour before being released.
Brescia jail officer Calogero Lo Presti said: “We saw a high-powered Mercedes coupé come through the gate with two lads on board, and after a few minutes we realised Balotelli was one of them.
“They were questioned for 30 minutes to get their details and by the end both were frightened. Balotelli said he was sorry.
“They said they had seen the gate was open, and went in without knowing that you need special permission to visit a jail.
“They added they were specially curious at the fact it was a women’s prison.”
