He was accused of smashing a fellow club-goer with a three liter bottle of vodka. The attack reportedly left the victim with a large gash in his head and a brain injury.
Vidal’s half-brother, Sandrino, was also reportedly involved in the attack.
The pair were tried in absentia as the Barcelona player was on international duty with Chile. Sandrino reportedly had not given an excuse for his absence.
Despite the significant fine, Arturo Vidal will at least avoid the much harsher punishments that were threatened - the harshest being 10 years in prison. His half-brother was ordered to pay 18,000 euros. The pair have two weeks to appeal the punishments.
