Peter Sagan has been fined €5,000 for injuring a police officer and violating a COVID-19 curfew. Reportedly, they were stopped by a police officer when driving in their car together with his brother Juraj. Both of them were supposedly drunk and started to argue with the police officer. After a short struggle, a police officer suffered a hand injury.
Sagan’s lawyers justified his actions saying he feared he would be “forced to be vaccinated.”
