Oscar winner Jean Dujardin was convicted of driving under the influence after he was caught just last year on vacation on Corsica, an island in the Mediterranean between France and Italy.
The actor did not appear in court, and has further decided to appeal the decision. The case will be heard later this year as it is now being forwarded to Corsica’s appeals court reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The actor may have had a few too many drinks when he was stopped outside Via Notte, a nightclub in the islands Portio Vecchio. A breathalyzer proved a blood alcohol level of 0.52 mg. This was double the country’s permitted limit of 0.25 mg.
Dujardin had to his license suspended for three months, and was subjected to pay a fine of several hundred euros.
Dujardin has been filming Monuments Men across the English Channel alongside George Clooney, Matt Damon and Bill Murray.
