Whenever we hear news of Balotelli, we know it wont disappoint and it was no different on this occasion. The Manchester City striker was almost arrested by police after neighbours reported the burglary of his £3 million mansion, only to find out that the alleged criminal was no other than Ballotelli himself.

The Italian born star returned to his home with a friend to collect electrical goods following a fire there last month. Friends of  Balotelli alegedly set off fireworks in the bathroom of his Cheshire home and since the incident he has been living elsewhere.

And apparently a month is long enough time to forget what the controversial footballer looks like as neighbours, failing to recognise him, called the police when they saw two suspicious men ‘running down a road, carrying stuff and loading up a 4×4’.

Now that’s what you call good neighbourhood watch!
