3 months suspended prison sentence for Peter Sagan for drunk driving

In some not so ideal preparation to the final Tour de France of his career, Peter Sagan has been in court in Monaco to find out the result of a drink driving charge against him.

”The police noticed the risky, even dangerous behavior of a driver at the handlebars of his motorized vehicle. The driver was trying to park in a space reserved for two-wheelers. The agents approached and very quickly they noticed the signs of the intoxication,” said the magistrate, explaining the allegation.

Sagan revealed through his representative that he had spent the previous night out drinking in nightclubs throughout the city, getting to bed at 3am. The time that Sagan was apprehended by police and breathalysed was said to be 11:35am.

The result of this was a three-month suspended prison sentence for the Slovakian and a three-month suspension from driving with the prosecution referencing the fact that Sagan's role as an example to young people means he should have behaved better.
