19-year-old student who threw an egg at French President Emmanuel Macron was admitted to a mental hospital
PARIS – A 19-year-old student who threw an egg at French President Emmanuel Macron has been admitted to a mental hospital after a medical examination, prosecutors said on Tuesday.
The man was arrested, and an investigation was opened for “attacking a person holding public authority,” said the Lyon prosecutor’s office. Until then, he was not known to the police.
The student underwent a psychiatric evaluation which determined a “lack of judgment and a need for hospitalization,” the prosecution said in a statement on Tuesday.
