Italian Pol Slashes Disabled Man’s Tires

Smile, you’re on closed-circuit camera! Italian politician Antonio Piazza, a member of Silvio Berlusconi’s People of Freedom (PDL) party and head of a corporation that manages to public housing, was forced to resign following a spat with a disabled man over a handicapped parking spot. According to The Telegraph, Piazza parked in the spot, which he says he’s used for years, but was reprimanded by the disabled man, who called the police. Piazza was fined €80 and drove away, only to sneak back half an hour later to slash the disabled man’s tires with a knife. The whole thing, unfortunately for Piazza, was captured on closed-circuit TV. Piazza said the dustup was the result of “a technical error, due to a momentary fit of rage.”
