José Aznar, a tourist from Los Angeles didn’t tip an Italian posing as a Roman centurion in front of the Colosseum for a picture. The actor dressed in armor threw the tip in the face of the tourist and proceeded to kick and beat the tourist.
Police in Rome were studying the group photo to identify the alleged aggressor. It would not be the first time Rome’s modern centurions have resorted to violence. Arrests were made in 2003 after an argument between rival bands of costumed Romans over turf rights outside the Colosseum resulted in a fist fight in front of tourists.
