Student lands in psychiatric hospital after tossing egg at Emmanuel Macron


A 19-year-old student was admitted to a psychiatric hospital after he tossed an egg at French President Emmanuel Macron during an international food fair in the city of Lyon, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Viral footage of the incident shows Macron walking through the crowd Monday when the egg bounced off him without breaking – prompting two bodyguards to get closer to the French leader.

“If he has something to tell me, then he can come,” Macron reportedly said after being struck at the International Catering, Hotel and Food Trade Fair, according to Agence France-Presse.

“I’ll go see him afterwards,” he added.

The unnamed suspect, who wasn’t previously known to authorities, was detained and investigated for “assault on a person in a position of public authority,” prosecutors said about his fowl play.
