Cote d’Ivoire and Paris Saint-Germain defender, Serge Aurier, has been handed a two-month prison sentence for violence against a police officer.
He elbowed a policeman who asked him to take a breathalyzer test as he entered his car outside the Champs Elysees night club near Paris on May 30, 2016
He was handed a £521 fine and ordered to pay £1,300 in court costs. Because it is a ‘convertible’ sentence, the 23-year-old will serve through community service and will also appeal the sentence.
Reacting to the verdict, PSG released a statement saying it had taken note of the decision against Aurier. 

“Because of his appeal, PSG still presume the player innocent as the case is still ongoing. Aurier can continue to play and do his job in France and abroad. PSG also want to emphasize his professional attitude since returning to training in July. PSG will make no further official comment until Aurier’s appeal has been judged.”
