Controversial Paris Saint-Germain full-back Serge Aurier has been sentenced to two months in prison for violence towards a police officer.
The Ivory Coast international, who was stopped by police in his Porsche Cayenne and asked to take a breath test after leaving a Parisian nightclub, abused and acted violently towards police officers before elbowing an officer in the chest on May 30th.
The 23-year-old was also ordered to pay €600 in fines by the Paris correctional tribunal, with a further €1,500 in costs.
The sentence, which has been described as ‘convertible’ means Aurier is more likely to receive a suspended sentence and perform community service rather than jail time.
Aurier has already announced plans to appeal the decision.
