A court in France has sent a Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier to two months in jail on Monday for assaulting a police officer following an incident outside a Paris night club in May.
NewTelegraph UK, the court heard that the troubled Ivory Coast international refused to cooperate when asked to leave his tinted-glass Porsche Cayenne car which police said was incorrectly parked outside the club in the early hours in an upmarket district of the capital.
However, police alleged that Aurier elbowed one of the officers in the chest, causing him to have to take a day off work during an altercation.
Aurier denied the charge and was allowed to walk free from the court because no order for immediate incarceration was issued pending a possible appeal. It means the full-back could play for PSG in their Champions League tie against Ludogorets in Bulgaria on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old star, who has had recent disciplinary problems with his club, rejected the police account of the incident and said he was the victim of violence. He has filed a complaint against the police.
The court also ordered him to pay 600 euros ($674) in damages and interest as well as 1,500 euros in court costs.SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
