Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan, currently on loan with Turkish club Başakşehir, was given a suspended two year, eight month sentence for firing a gun to cause fear and panic, illegal possession of weapons and intentional injury, Reuters reported.

Turan was involved in a fight with Turkish singer Berkay Şahin in an İstanbul nightclub late last year, leaving the singer with a broken nose. Turan later arrived at the hospital with a gun that he fired at the ground, causing panic.

Başakşehir said they had fined the 31-year-old TL 2.5 million ($432,548) over the incident.

He joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid for 34 million euros ($37.45 million) in 2015, winning four trophies, making 55 appearances and scoring 15 goals for the Catalan club.

Turan has played for Turkey 100 times and scored 17 goals for his country
