In recent days, when we talk about Olympique Lyonnais, football fans think of buyout, United States, majority shareholder or John Textor. But in spite of himself, another OL player made the news this week. Indeed, our colleagues from Telegram reported that a young footballer from Lyon had been arrested.
It all started this Monday, June 20 at the end of the afternoon when bikers from the Rennes CRS, posted in Saint-Brieuc in the city center, carried out a check. They then noticed a 20 year old young man in a vehicle and asked him to stop. The driver refused to be checked, the police chased him and a chase began.
The player was quickly arrested after having “hit a city barrier”said the prosecution, according to comments reported by our colleagues from West France. He even tried to flee again, but his car, which belongs to his mother, was too damaged to restart. “The tires would have suffered and above all, the case triggered the airbags. Despite this, he would have tried to continue on his way. In vain”wrote The Telegram.
Heard at the Saint-Brieuc police station, the arrested man admitted driving without insurance. Worse, his license was recently suspended and the respondent was therefore driving illegally. He acknowledged all the facts and will have to explain himself to the Saint-Brieuc court, in CRPC (Appearance on prior admission of guilt), on January 16, 2023. The identity of the reckless driver has not been revealed.
