Rome - Linger too long near George Clooney's Italian villa in hopes of catching a glimpse of the actor-director and his new bride and you might pay dearly.

The town of Laglio, where Clooney owns an 18th-century mansion with private dock on Lake Como, has hiked fines for those who create "problems of public order" when gathering to gawk on the main lakeside road behind the villa or approach by boat closer than 100 meters (110 yards) offshore.
Mayor Roberto Pozzi said in a phone interview Tuesday he signed ordinances introducing fines as stiff as 500 euros ($550), five times higher than before.
Clooney married London-based human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in September.
Pozzi says so far "common sense" has prevailed and no one has been fined.
