Put Another Dumbass On The Barbie

An Australian tourist visited Italy recently, and was checking out the country’s historical sites… while driving a moped through Pompeii’s ancient ruins. It’s likely this is the last time he’ll be in Italy.

An Australian tourist was arrested after he was caught riding his moped through the ancient ruins of Pompeii, Italy.

The ‘barbarian’, reported to be 33-years-old, was apprehended by security after travelling for about a mile around the world-famous archaeological park.

The Aussie claimed he didn’t know you couldn’t ride vehicles near the ruins, although that seems like an obvious infraction for a site that was destroyed nearly 2,000 years ago.

The tourist claimed he didn’t know that he wasn’t allowed to drive through the 2,000-year-old site which was famously destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 79 AD.

The UNESCO world heritage site does not allow tourist vehicles, and fortunately in this case the park confirmed no parts of the ancient city were accessed or damaged.

Shockadile Dundee was arrested by Italian police, but thankfully none of the ruins were… well, ruined.
