Barcelona - Barcelona defender Gerard Pique was fined $11 740 by a Spanish judge on Tuesday for abusing police after the car he was travelling in was given a parking ticket.

Pique wrote an apology to the court hearing in Barcelona for the public order offence that took place on October 13, last year.

Judge Maria Asuncion Gonzalez fined Pique for "disrespectful behaviour and being verbally aggressive".

The centre back's brother was given a ticket for leaving his car in a bus lane in the Port Olimpic area of the city, which is known for its bars and nightclubs.
