Inter Milan face hearing after scooter incident

MILAN, May 8 (Reuters) - Inter Milan are to face a disciplinary hearing after their fans hurled a motor scooter from the second level of the San Siro stadium towards the end of Sunday's game against Atalanta.

Reports said Inter supporters brought the scooter into the ground after stealing it from an Atalanta fan during a pre-match scuffle.

Photographs showed a group of fans trying to set the scooter on fire before hurling it from an upper stand on to an empty section of the stadium. No one was injured in the incident.

Inter, who will appear before the Italian Football League Disciplinary Committee, face a fine and possible ban from using the stadium.

Milan police commissioner Enzo Boncoraglio held a meeting with Inter and AC Milan officials on Monday to discuss improving security at the stadium wich is shared by the two Serie A clubs.

Inter have been banned by UEFA from using the San Siro for their next two European games following crowd trouble at the end of a UEFA Cup match against Alaves in February. There have been numerous cases of fans throwing objects onto the pitch this season.

The San Siro is to host the Champions League final on May 23.
