Italy - Juventus defender Martin Caceres has been temporarily removed from Juventus' squad and fined after an alleged drunk-driving accident.

A club statement says Caceres' behavior Monday night ''represents gross violation of his responsibilities as a Juventus player, as well as damaging the image of the club.''

The ANSA news agency reports that the Uruguay international also had his Ferrari and driver's license taken away and was fined 531 euros ($600) by police after the accident. ANSA says Caceres was not injured after his Ferrari hit a bus shelter after veering to the wrong side of the road and colliding with some parked cars.

The 28-year-old Caceres is in his fourth season with Juventus. The defending Serie A champion hosts Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday.
