PSG And Ivory Coast Star Serge Aurier Bags Jail Term For Elbowing A Police Officer

Ivory Coast footballer Serge Aurier, who plays for Paris St-Germain (PSG), has been sentenced to two months in jail for elbowing a police officer. Aurier was also fined €600 (£521, $674) in damages over the incident at a Paris nightclub in May.


He will remain free pending an appeal, which means he could play for PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old was suspended earlier this year after making derogatory comments about the then-PSG coach.

Aurier was convicted on Monday of elbowing a police officer after leaving a nightclub in the early hours of 30 May.

He had been stopped to take a breath test after leaving a Parisian nightclub.

According to the police account, the officer involved needed to take a day off work to recover from his injuries.

Aurier denied the charge, arguing that he was a victim of police violence.

In addition to paying damages, he was charged a further €1,500 (£1,304; $1687) to cover court costs.
