Ansa reported 

the Uruguayan, 28, was over the alcohol limit when his Ferrari crashed into parked cars and a bus shelter in Turin.

Juve stated 

the defender’s behaviour on the night of 28 September was “a gross violation” of his duty to the club.

Caceres joined the Serie A champions in 2012 and has won four league titles.

He also helped the side reach last season’s Champions League final.

The statement added: “Juventus will thus taken disciplinary action against the player in the form of a fine and his temporary suspension from the first team.”

The Italian club, who meet Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday, are already without several players through injury, including Sami Khedira, Claudio Marchisio, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Mario Mandzukic.
