Another caper successfully pulled off. Bella!
Official Spoiler mascot and crown prince of shenanigans, Mario Balotelli, is back!
After lying low for a while, convalescing from recent knee surgery (pre-operation hijinks? Expect nothing less.), Super Mario has bounded back into the headlines by trying to stage a prison break INTO a women’s jail.
Mario and his 17-year-old brother Enock were arrested in the Italian city of Brescia, near Milan, and questioned for half an hour on Friday after deciding, out of curiosity, to have a wander around the grounds of an all-female clink.
Says prison screw Calogero Lo Presti:
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.
Not for the first time: brilliant.
