A league Winner Tiemoue Bakayoko was stopped at gunpoint by police in Italy in a horrific ordeal that emerged in a case of mistaken identity.
A video retweeted by Sport Italia journalist Tancredi Palmeri captured the horrifying incident. A police officer pushed the terrified footballer, who played 14 Serie A games for the triumphant Rossoneri last season, into a police car.
Terrible moment Tiemoue Bakayoko is arrested at gunpoint in Milan
As he appears to be emptying Bakayoko’s pockets and throwing the contents onto the roof of the police car, two other police officers aim at the player’s car, guns drawn.
A police officer points her gun at another occupant of the vehicle.
Gradually, however, the cops seem to realize they have the wrong person and quickly holster their guns and comfort the midfielder with a gentle pat on the back.
“Shocking footage of Milan’s Bakayoko in central Milan being held at gunpoint by police for being taken for someone else,” Tancredi tweeted.
“Check when one of the cops tells the searching colleague that it’s not the suspect but a Milan player and the cop says ‘WHO?!?'”
Bakayoko made 14 appearances in Serie A for AC Milan last season but only made five starts
The 27-year-old signed for Chelsea in a big money move in 2017, joining Stamford Bridge from Monaco for £40million.
But despite being with the club for five years, the change didn’t work out. In his freshman season, he played 43 games in all competitions.
But since then he has been on loan at AC Milan, Monaco, Napoli and then again at AC Milan where he won the Serie A title last season.
