NAPLES, Italy (AP) — A soccer player in Italy could face sanctions after hitting and threatening to kill a journalist.
The incident happened Sunday after Napoli's 2-1 victory over Udinese.
According to reports, Napoli defender Salvatore Aronica repeatedly said "I'm going to kill you" while also slapping the journalist twice and jabbing him with bystanders present.
Aronica, who had been upset by the journalist's comments about him on television, later apologized.
