Atlético Madrid's Lucas Hernández Faces Jail Sentence Over Las Vegas Wedding

Atlético Madrid's Lucas Hernández Faces Jail Sentence Over Las Vegas Wedding

You did read that headline correctly. Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez could face a one-year jail sentence after breaking a restraining order by marrying his girlfriend in Las Vegas.

In February last year Hernandez and his wife, Amelia Ossa Llorente, were given 31 days community service and a six month mutual restraining order after he was found guilty of domestic abuse.

Despite the restraining order that stated they could not come within 500 metres of one another, the pair decided to ignore the rule and get married in Las Vegas - just four months later.

After the wedding they reportedly travelled to the Bahamas to celebrate their honeymoon, according to Spanish publication AS.
