MILAN (AP) -- New AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has been involved in an argument with police after parking illegally on Thursday.

According to reports, Balotelli, who was on his way to collect friends, was told to move his car when he stopped in a no-parking zone in front of Milan's Linate airport.

The Italy striker did so, but then parked again illegally. Balotelli was then fined by the traffic police for not having his insurance documents on him.

Balotelli reacted badly, getting into a heated discussion with them, and passing police had to intervene to calm the situation.

Balotelli returned to Italy last week in a €20 million ($27 million) transfer from Manchester City.

He scored both goals in a 2-1 win over Udinese on Sunday.
