French actor SAMY NACERI has been sentenced to six months in jail after he was found guilty of causing involuntary injury while driving without a licence.
Naceri, 47, was accused of knocking over a female policewoman with his car in the accident, which occurred earlier this month (Nov08).
According to police, Naceri was driving without a licence and tried to pass himself off as his brother when stopped.
The Taxi action movie star holds previous convictions for drink driving, speeding and assault.
He was also fined $9,600 (GBP6,016) by a Paris court on Wednesday (05Nov08).
Naceri did not attend the court hearing in a bid to avoid a media "circus", according to his lawyer Francoise Cotta. He added the actor was "sincerely, deeply sorry" for the incident.
