French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped in the face Tuesday during a meet-and-greet with locals in a small village.
Video shows Macron approaching a barrier to greet a man who, instead of shaking hands, slapped the 43-year-old leader on his left cheek.
The president’s bodyguards quickly intervened and two people were arrested in the village of Tain-l’Hermitage in the Drome region, local officials said.
“The man who tried to slap the president and another individual are currently being questioned by the gendarmerie,” the regional prefecture said in a statement, according to AFP.
“Around 1:15 p.m., the president got back into his car after visiting a high school and came back out because onlookers were calling out to him,” it said.
