London, Jul 2 (ANI): Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is facing a police probe after he lashed out and kicked in a teenage girl's car window.
Ronaldo, 24, claims that he was protecting his mom when he kicked the car window that terrified 17-year-old Sara Pardal, who was filming his family heading to an Elton John concert, was sitting in.
The winger faces an inquiry for allegedly wounding and destroying property after Pardal, treated in hospital for cuts, complained to police in the Portuguese capital Lisbon.
"I regret what I did, but I can't promise that I would not react in the same way again in the same circumstances," the Daily Star quoted the defiant footie as saying.
"Because when my mother is involved it is very difficult for me to keep a calm state of mind," he said.
Ronaldo, his mum Dolores, 54, his two sisters and pals were about to head to the gig when he spotted Pardal, believed to have been with a freelance photographer.
He leapt from his 200,000 pounds red Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, and smashed the window near the cowering teen, who claimed she was a fan of his.
"I was accompanied by my mother and he by a young woman who throughout our whole journey ostensibly and provocatively filmed all our movements," Ronaldo said.
"This persecution caused my mother to be so disturbed and upset that I had to stop my car to try to convince them to leave us in peace," he stated.
He further claimed that the photographer tried to sell a video of the incident to the firm representing him.
"We cannot make any comment whatsoever," a police spokesman added on July 1. (ANI)
