The Pope was left with a red face after his adapted golf cart- known as "The Popemobile," was clamped outside shops in Milan.
His Holiness was out looking to buy a USB cable to fix his, "Buggered up Lexmark Printer," when he stopped on double yellow lines.
An on-the-ball parking attendant quickly issued a ticket and had the car clamped and towed.
Just as "The Popemobile" was loaded up onto the tow truck, His Holiness returned from the shops, with his purchases and caught sight of his clamped car.
It was at this point that The Pope allegedly flew into a rage and accused the Traffic Warden of being a "heretic," before claiming to have only been gone for, "Like, two minutes!"
In a further outburst, described as "unusual" by the Vatican, The Pope raged; "When you get to the Pearly Gates, you'll be sent packing! I can put in good words or bad words for people and you've just made a very powerful enemy!"
The Pope then asked the Traffic Wardens for his name to "Guarantee he goes to hell."
When the Warden refused to give out any personal details, The Pope angrily hailed a taxi and left the scene with his shopping.
The Pope remained unavailable for comment.
