An amateur French soccer player was suspended for five years after he bit an opponent’s penis during a post-match fight in the parking lot, according to Goal.com.
Following SC Terville’s home match against AS Soetrich in November, a “violent confrontation” broke out between the two teams in the locker rooms.
That fight quickly migrated to the parking lot outside the stadium in Terville — which sits just more than 200 miles northeast of Paris near the Luxembourg border. One Terville player then attempted to jump in and separate the two players who were fighting, per the report. That’s when the Soetrich player bit his penis.
The player was rushed to the hospital, where he needed 12 stitches.
None of the players were named in the report for legal reasons.
The Soetrich player was banned for five years for the incident. The injured Terville player was disciplined for “acts of brutality” in both the locker room and parking lot, and is suspended until June. The club was also fined €200 and had two points deducted in the league standings for its leaders’ “lack of reaction,” according to ESPN.
Moselle director general Emmanuel Saling said it took the disciplinary committee months to finally determine appropriate punishments for the incident.
«Witness accounts, in particular, were gathered in order to retrace the facts as accurately as possible,» Saling told Lorraine Actu, via ESPN. «All of that before returning the conclusions over to the disciplinary committee.»
