L’Équipe via La Montagne report today that Clermont striker Mohamed Bayo was yesterday taken into police custody after being involved in a road accident on his way to a wedding.
The 23-year-old reportedly drove past a red traffic light in a rental car and collided with another vehicle. The forward was said to have been recognised by the those in the other vehicle, and despite trying to escape the scene was caught by police not far from the scene.
Bayo’s alcohol level was above the legal limit, and as a result was placed under police custody during Sunday. His release was expected in the evening.
