New demonstration, new questioning. Adrien F. was arrested on Monday in the Parisian procession against the pension reform, Le Figaro learned from police sources. The man had made himself known on the sidelines of an undeclared rally in Amiens on May 15, during which Jean-Baptiste Trogneux was attacked.
The Paris prosecutor's office confirms that Adrien F. is in custody at the police station of the 7th arrondissement of Paris for "acts of participation in a group formed for the preparation of violence against people or destruction or damage to property". A police source adds that he is also accused of "carrying a prohibited weapon", the individual having been intercepted with a helmet and gloves shelled.
Relaxed in Amiens
The day before, he had been acquitted by the criminal court of Amiens for violence in assembly against Jean-Baptiste Trogneux, owner of the eponymous chocolate factory in Amiens and grand-neuveu of Brigitte Macron. He appeared alongside two other individuals who were sentenced to between 12 and 15 months in prison. They were found guilty of beating Jean-Baptiste Trogneux who tried to prevent them from throwing garbage cans at the window of his business.
At the hearing, Adrien F., who presents himself as illiterate, denied having assaulted Jean-Baptiste Trogneux, explaining that he had participated in the rally as an "independent journalist", relaying news related to social movements.
