Man (32) who threw water bottle on Payet comes to court and hears punishment

The Olympique Lyon fan who pelted Dimitri Payet with a water bottle on Sunday had to go to court on Tuesday. The supporter finally received a suspended prison sentence of six months, reports L‘ร‰quipe.
On Sunday evening, Olympique Lyon and Olympique Marseille faced each other. When Payet wanted to take a corner, he got a filled bottle on his head. The Frenchman was in a lot of pain and the competition was finally stopped. The perpetrator was quickly obsolete and had to go to court in Lyon on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old man in question told in court why he threw the bottle. โ€œI don’
t know what was going on in my head at the time. Maybe it was the euphoria, I don‘t know,โ€ he is quoted by L’ร‰quipe.
The prosecutor wanted the thrower to receive an unconditional prison sentence of six months. The judge did not go along with that: he imposed an equally long suspended prison sentence. Due to the incident, Lyon must play without an audience for the time being.
