Mario Balotelli reportedly had his license confiscated by Italian police after speeding through a residential zone near Brescia's Stadio Mario Rigamonti.

The 25-year-old striker, back at Milan on loan from Liverpool, was caught on radar driving 90 kilometers per hour in a 50-kilometer-per-hour zone near his family home. Balotelli pulled over immediately and accepted the charge calmly, according to reports.

Upon his return to Milan, Balotelli signed a strict behavior agreement. On top of the club's standards, Balotelli agreed to guidelines on par with the code of conduct put in place by the Italian air force.

Balotelli performed well in his second Milan debut in a friendly against Mantova at the start of the international break. He scored a fantastic goal three minutes in, then followed the goal up by drawing a penalty and recording an assist.

However, Balotelli has been told by the club he is overweight, and he has been put on a diet.

The Italian could make his first official appearance of the season Sunday, when Milan faces Balotelli's former club Inter in the first Derby Della Madonnina of the season.
