Did you think action movies were exciting? Well, he The Vatican has just experienced its own thriller from Hollywood! This Thursday night, a man who seemed to be very out of his mind decided to challenge the security of the Vatican and entered at full speed with his car. This happened after he was denied entry by the Swiss guards because he did not have authorization.
According to official statements, around 8:00 p.m., this intrepid driver appeared at one of the entrances to the Vatican. When the Swiss guards told him he couldn’t get through, he decided he wouldn’t take no for an answer. He turned around, revved up his car and launched at high speed, managing to force both checkpoints.

The Vatican gendarmerie, as surprised as we were, went into action. One of the inspectors even shot the car’s tires in an attempt to stop the runaway driver, but was unsuccessful. At that moment, all the alarms went off and the other entrances to the Vatican were closed to prevent further chaos.
Finally, the car stopped inside the Vatican, and the man got out by himself. He was quickly arrested by the gendarmerie, who underwent a medical evaluation. The results showed that the man was suffering from a “serious psychophysical disturbance”.
The man’s identity has not yet been revealed, but what we do know is that he is currently in a Vatican cell and at the disposal of judicial authorities. So next time you think action movies are too over the top, remember this story and think again!
