Montpellier forward Andy Delort gets prison sentence for taunting police

Montpellier striker Andy Delort was on Monday given a two-year suspended prison sentence and fined €18,000 for threatening behaviour towards police officers, a legal source told AFP on Monday.

Delort, 27, who is loan from fellow Ligue 1 club Toulouse, was arrested in August last year as he was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a police car chase.

When police signalled that the vehicle should stop, the driver refused and instead accelerated. A chase ensued just south of Delort's home town of Sete in southern France.

When the driver was finally persuaded to stop, police found that he was drunk and did not have a driving licence.

Delort then told police: "I don't give a damn. I make 150 000 euros a month."

He was found guilty of insulting and threatening a police officer.

Delort, who had a spell with English club Wigan in the 2014-2015 season, has scored nine goals in 25 appearances for Montpellier this season.
