Mohamed Haouas, pillar of Montpellier and the XV of France rugby, was placed Friday evening in police custody in Montpellier for acts of domestic violence, his lawyer told AFP, confirming information from The Team. The exact circumstances that led to the player’s arrest are currently unknown.
Aged 29, married and father of two children, the colossus of the MHR, who will play in Clermont next season, declared on May 12 that he wanted to “turn the page on the mistakes of youth”, while two years in prison suspended had was summoned against him before the Montpellier Criminal Court for “aggravated violence” committed almost ten years ago.
“My goal is never to return to court again,” he said at the hearing, explaining that he was trying to “evolve”: “I decided to leave Montpellier before the end of my contract to change everything, change house, city, life.” A year ago, the international (16 caps) was given an 18-month suspended prison sentence for his involvement in burglaries in 2014, when he had not yet started his professional career.
In the case of aggravated violence – a fight of rare violence also involving the rugby player’s childhood friends – the Montpellier Criminal Court will hand down its decision on June 30, about two months before the World Cup in France ( September 8-October 28), in which the future resident of ASM Clermont hopes to participate. But his recurring indiscipline could compromise his chances of selection.
