Gladiators Kicked Out Of Colosseum

A squad of 80 municipal policemen booted a small legion of costumed gladiators and centurions from Rome's Colosseum yesterday.

The policemen warned the 30 sword-swishing, faux gladiators that they will no longer be allowed to hang out at the 2,000-year-old monument.

A 2002 law prohibits anyone to pose in costume around the Colosseum.

Following the warning, those who pose near the arena dressed as ancient Romans will face up to one year in jail.
