The 64-year-old French actor was not in a Paris court to hear his sentence this week, the BBC reported.

The penalties stem from a November 2012 incident in which police said Depardieu fell off his scooter because his blood-alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit.

Depardieu moved to Belgium months ago and obtained Russian citizenship in protest of the French government's plans to impose a 75 percent tax rate on its wealthiest citizens.
