German Footballer Boateng Found Guilty In Assault Case
Former Germany International and Olympique Lyonnais defender Jerome Boateng was found guilty of premeditated bodily harm on his former partner, a spokesperson for a court in Munich said.
The 2014 World Cup winner, who was fined 1.8 million euros ($2.13 million), was accused of injuring his ex-girlfriend in a fight during a vacation in 2018.
The mother of his twin daughters accused Boateng of throwing a lamp at her which missed and then throwing a small cooling box which injured her arm before hitting her and pulling her hair.
Boateng had denied injuring his ex-girlfriend.
The 33-year-old centre-back spent 10 years at Bayern Munich after joining from Manchester City in 2011, winning nine Bundesliga titles and two Champions League trophies. He signed a two-year contract at Ligue 1 side Lyon last week.
