Italian Soccer Phenom Mario Balotelli Caught Throwing Darts From Window, Says He Was ‘Bored’


March 27, 2011

Mario Balotelli has certainly made a name for himself this week.

On Monday, the 20-year-old Manchester City soccer player will have a hearing to discuss some disciplinary issues.

According to, Balotelli was caught throwing darts from his window at the direction of the youth players. However, the incident appears to be only a "misguided prank" because he was "bored."

This isn't the first incident for Balotelli. Last week he was sent off in the 36th minute in a crucial Europa League game, leaving his manager to call Balotelli's actions "stupid." Prior to that, the young soccer player was featured on an Italian TV show wearing an AC Milan shirt, antagonizing Inter Milan fans.

Earlier in the week, the Italian became a YouTube sensation after he was caught struggling to put his bib on during his warm up. After throwing the bib in frustration, he needed help from one of the assistant coaches.

However, despite his off-field actions, Balotelli appears to be a promising player on the field. In 12 Premier League games this year, he has six goals, zero assists and 31 shots.
