Toulouse. The driver gets confused with a policeman in civilian clothes, hits him and rolls over him
Through Laurent Derne
It was a clash as it undoubtedly occurs hundreds, each year, in Toulouse. A summer Saturday, more precisely August 25, 2018, up to the Saint-Michel bridge. Of them motorists collide, a stone’s throw from the courthouse. But the culprit tries to take the tangent.
The gendarme catches up with the fugitive
Bad luck for him, the other protagonist involved is a policeman in civilian clothes. It catches up with it, carries itself up to its height, declines its quality and insist on making a statement. The two drivers get out. The soldier manages to grab the keys to prevent the 40-year-old man from going wild before the police arrived.
This is where the grain of sand which will totally degenerate this evening. A man intervenes. Where does it come from? The story does not say. He accuses the driver of having exercised violence on him. The moment chosen by the follower of the hit-and-run to try to (definitively) be the beauty. And at all costs.
He rolls over his foot, 104 days of ITT
He rushes on the 52-year-old gendarme, hits him violently at punches and kicks, enough to make him fall to the ground, recover his keys and set off again at the wheel. All in rolling on the soldier’s foot which will be transmitted … 104 days of ITT.
Three long years pass, without the investigation really progressing. Until the file landed on the desk of the central police station From toulouse. Identified, the individual does not comply with his summons. The police will eventually stop him at home. In police custody, he would have “partly acknowledged the facts”.
Referred for “Aggravated violence”, he will be judged this Thursday, October 21, 2021 in immediate comparison.
