Arrested for drunk driving in October 2021, Claremont player Mohamed Bio was sentenced on Wednesday to two months in prison, a fine of 4,000 euros and a license suspension.
Judged for “drunk driving” and “inadvertently causing hurt”, Mohamed Bio was sentenced on Wednesday to a suspended prison sentence of two months, a fine of 4,000 euros and a license suspension. Initially scheduled for next June, the bio trial finally took place in April, with the player accepting the sentence proposed by the prosecution, thus avoiding a heavy sentence.
The facts happened on the night of October 24, 2021. A day after Clermont’s defeat in Nantes (2–1), Mohamed Bayo passed a traffic light and caused an accident with another vehicle in Chamlires (Puy-de-Dome). After the alcohol test proved positive, the Claremont striker is being held in police custody for “hit and run” and “drunk driving”.
His second drunk driving conviction
This is not the first time that the 23-year-old striker has appeared in court for drunken driving. In 2019, Bayo was sentenced to a road safety awareness course and a license suspension for the same reason. So he was judged as a recessive on Wednesday.
If Beyo experiences trouble off the field, then on the grass field, all is well for Guinea. The top scorer in Ligue 2 last season (22 goals), his apprenticeship in the elite was done at breakneck pace. The author of ten goals in 25 games, he is one of Pascal Gastian’s strong men and offensive weapon number one Clermontois, who is still in the running for keeper.
