AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has been issued two traffic fines for driving without the relevant insurance documents, it was reported Thursday.

Balotelli, who scored a brace on his debut for the Rossoneri on Sunday following his recent transfer from Manchester City, was with friends when he was stopped by police.

According to ANSA news agency, police stopped Balotelli in his Audi Rs4 and gave him two fines, one for lacking the proper insurance document and another for not displaying a local insurance badge.

The report said Balotelli later drove off in his English-registered car.

Balotelli featured for Italy in a friendly against the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Wednesday, which finished 1-1.
