Andy Polo must pay 600 thousand dollars to his ex-partner, after being found guilty of domestic violence

The Peruvian soccer player Andy Polo will have to pay the sum of 600 thousand dollars in damages to his ex-partner Génesis Alarcón, after a jury in Multnomah County, Oregon, found him responsible in the civil lawsuit filed against him for assault, as reported by ESPN.

In this regard, Michael Fuller, Alarcón’s lawyer, offered some details of this resolution against the national team and the implications it may have, given that this complaint was made in the United States, when Polo played for the Portland Timbers.

“If (Polo) keeps all his assets abroad and does not earn income in the United States, he will probably evade collections,” Fuller explained to ESPN.

It is worth mentioning that the cream attacker is regularly called up to the Peruvian team, the same one that will travel to the North American country to play the 2024 Copa América.

“You can enter the United States, but we will do everything possible to domesticate the sentence in the states to which you travel, with the hope of executing it against you while you are physically present on American soil,” the lawyer said in this regard.

The complaint against Polo occurred in 2021, after being accused of domestic violence to the detriment of his cohabitant, Génesis Alarcón at the time.

“With his son present, the defendant attempted and did cause harmful physical contact with the plaintiff, including violently grabbing her arm, pulling her hair against her will, and pushing her to the ground. causing him pain and discomfort,” notes the report from the Washington Sheriff’s Department.
