Ligue One Footballer Is Arrested For Masturbating In Public For Second Time

Ligue One Footballer Is Arrested For Masturbating In Public For Second Time

Ligue One footballer Farid El Malai has been taken into custody for a second allegation of indecent exposure.

Having already been charged with sexual exhibition following a complaint that surfaced in May, the Angers winger has been accused of a further two flashing offences and has been called into questioning by the local authorities, as per Ouest France.

The 23-year old spent time in police custody on Wednesday morning, before returning to training for an afternoon session.

His lawyer told Ouest-France that their client "reiterates his most sincere apologies to the women he may have upset by his inappropriate behaviour."

The Algerian international was already facing a court hearing over a first instance of alleged public indecency.

It was reported that El Melali was seen 'masturbating in the courtyard of his block of flats while looking at a woman who lives on the ground floor.'

He had suggested he thought he was alone in the courtyard.

Neighbours of the woman alerted police after the incident took place and local police then arrested the former Paradou AC player.

A further investigation has been ordered following a second separate instance where El Malali exposed himself to the same victim, with the footballer now set to appear a court in court on August 25th.

Angers President Fabrice Favetto-Bon issued a statement which read: "We believe that we have already made statements on this matter. We heard the player's apology.

"Obviously, this type of behaviour, pending the decision of the courts, does not conform with the values of the club and our requirement of players to be examples. The process is ongoing."

El Melali could be hit with a one-year prison sentence and €15,000 fine, while he also faces potential punishment from his club and may have his contract terminated.

El Melali joined Angers in August 2018 and only recent signed a new contract extension with his employers.
