LONDON - Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli will not face legal
action over reports he threatened a woman for taking photographs of his Ferrari
sports car, police announced on Tuesday.
Greater Manchester Police were called to investigate last
Thursday after reports of "threatening behaviour" involving the
24-year-old Italy international, who is thought to have been visiting his
mother at the time.
But after speaking to the woman who made the call, police
found no reason to launch an investigation.
"Police were called to Pewsey Road, Wythenshawe just
after 3pm (1400 GMT) on Thursday 23 October 2014, following reports of
threatening behaviour," said a spokesman for Greater Manchester Police.
"Officers have since spoken to the complainant and no
criminal offences were disclosed and no crime recorded. No further action will
be taken."Balotelli has experienced a difficult start to
his Liverpool career since arriving from AC Milan during the close season,
scoring only one goal in his first 11 appearances.
