Man arrested for attempted murder after hurling bidet in children's football kick-around dispute

Italian police arrested a man for attempted murder on Sunday after he used a bidet as a weapon to knock out his adversary during a dispute.

A kick-around between neighbourhood boys in Pozzuoli near Naples degenerated when one player accused another of a particularly dirty foul, and the resulting scuffle deteriorated when youngsters' parents stepped in to defend their offspring.

Just as officers arrived on the scene in the seaside town in southern Italy, Domenico Cammarota, 45, father to one of the boys, hurled a bidet out of the window of his apartment, hitting another father in the street below on the head.

The injured man, knocked out by the flying bathroom appliance, was taken to hospital, while Cammarota, who was already known to the police, was put behind bars.
