Arturo Vidal 'avoids trial over drink-driving after compensation agreement'

Juventus and Chile star Arturo Vidal escapes trial for drink-driving after apologising and agreeing to pay compensation.

Juventus and Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal will not stand trial for drink-driving after he reached a deal with prosecutors.

The 28-year-old was found to be under the influence of alcohol when he crashed his Ferrari on a motorway in Santiago, Chile on June 16.

Arturo and his wife escaped injuries, but as a result of the crash, the midfielder had his driving licence suspended and faced a charge of threatening a police officer.

On Wednesday, Vidal appeared before a judge and agreed to pay an undisclosed compensation fee to the driver involved in the collision, as well as donate sports equipment, according to the Daily Mail.

The midfielder, who has been banned from driving for two years, also apologised for insulting an officer and was ordered by the judge to give motivational speeches to prison inmates.
