No information has yet been given by the authorities about the identity or motive of the arrested person. In the video, Macron was heard saying that the man could have come to me if he wanted to say something to me.
Earlier in June, Macron was slapped by a man in a small town in southeastern France while he was accepting the public greetings. The slapper was then sentenced to 4 months in prison. Like France’s previous presidents, Macron is often seen meeting people among the crowd.
