Barça players lived a restless night to the end, a few hours from the knockout stages of the Champions League against PSG, this Wednesday evening (9 p.m.).
Already disturbed by fireworks set off near the hotel around 4 a.m., Lionel Messi's teammates were woken up an hour later by the fire alarm triggered by ... an undercover PSG fan, like RMC Sport reports.
The latter had previously reserved a room in the Pullman hotel, located at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, which had not been privatized by the Catalan club.
He shared his "feat" of the night on his social networks by posting videos.
A gesture that however led him into police custody for several hours in the morning.
He left the police station with a simple reminder of the law.

Fans of the capital club had promised "revenge" after the slight events of the first leg.
In front of the PSG hotel in Barcelona, firecrackers had been set off by Blaugrana supporters before 10 p.m., time of the curfew imposed in Catalonia.
On Sunday, February 7, the Paname ReBirth group had already deployed some banners hostile to Barça, even insulting for Shakira, companion of Gerard Piqué, forfeit for this return match.
Very active before the first leg, the Ultras Paris Collective (CUP), the only group of fans recognized by the club, is more discreet this week.
He did not make an appearance at the Loges camp this Tuesday before the last training.
PSG had yet provided a large number of security agents just in case.
This Wednesday, everything was very calm also on the side of Rueil-Malmaison (Hauts-de-Seine), where Mauricio Pochettino's players have been in the green since Tuesday evening.
