Soccer Player in Trouble for Riding in a Tank That Crushed Two Cars (Video)

Just a week ago, Italian soccer player Giulio Migliaccio was signed to the Atalanta soccer club from Palermo. And already, he finds himself in hot water with his new team. Why? Well, it seems Migliaccio attended a festival put on by supporters of Atalanta recently. And during the festival, they asked him to jump into a tank. He obliged, and when he did, the driver of the tank ran over two cars that had the logos of Atalanta's rival Roma and Brescia clubs on them. A video of the event got back to the Italian football federation, and Migliaccio was forced to issue an apology for being in the tank. In the apology, he claimed that he had no idea that the tank was going to do what it did.

"I only realized when the tank was going over [the cars]," he said, "and since I could not see because I was high up and at the back, I did not know that they had the symbols of two football clubs on them."

The lesson here? Don't jump into the back of a tank before you know where you're going. Ha.
