PARIS (AP) Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier will stand trial in September after being charged with assaulting a police officer.
Paris prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday that Aurier has been released from custody and will appear before a court on Sept. 26.
Aurier was arrested in the early hours of Monday near the Champs-Elysees following an argument with police after a night out in Paris. Prosecutors said the police officer needed to take a day off work because of the incident.
Aurier was suspended for six weeks in February after a video emerged on social media showing him making derogatory comments about PSG coach Laurent Blanc, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and other players.
The Ivory Coast defender is widely regarded as one of the best right backs in Europe.
