An unnamed Italian man hiked for a week in an attempt to calm himself down after arguing with his wife.
The 48-year-old left Como, in the north of Italy, and traveled 280 miles south over a period of a week.
He walked about 40 miles a day in an attempt to soothe his anger, according to the Independent.
Eventually, the man reached Fano - a beach resort on the Adriatic coast.
Across Italy, current lockdown regulations mean that a nationwide curfew is in place between 10 pm and 5 am.
The police, performing a standard search for rule-breakers, came across the man at roughly 2 am.
They questioned him and were reportedly shocked to discover that he'd covered such a distance.
After inputting his details into a database, the police confirmed that his wife had reported him missing.
Subsequently, they fined him €400 ($485) for breaching the curfew. They then put him up in a hotel, according to the Italian newspaper il Resto del Carlino.
Despite traveling such a great distance on foot, the man was not injured. He told the paper: "I'm fine. I'm just a little tired."
He also revealed that, during his journey, strangers offered him food and drinks.
