Lisieux. Sentenced for acts of violence, insult and rebellion: 8 months in prison

The events took place on March 4, 2024. The municipal police arrested an agitated and drunken man at a bus stop located on Place François-Mitterrand, in Lisieux (Calvados). The 22-year-old man began to provoke them by insulting them. The officers then requested assistance from the police station. As soon as he arrived, the insults intensified.

Elbows to the face

The defendant refused to comply, rebelled, struggled, shouted, and flailed, making the arrest almost impossible. The police officers were subjected to insulting and disrespectful remarks, as well as acts of violence and resistance. One of them was elbowed in the face, resulting in a day of total incapacity for work (ITT).

The police officers filed a complaint and the defendant was summoned to the judicial court on Thursday, July 4, 2024, but did not show up. The lawyer for the four police officers who were victims of the assault while on duty is claiming damages for the harm suffered.

After the prosecution’s indictment, the president declared the defendant guilty of the charges against him and sentenced him to 8 months in prison. The man must pay €350 to the two municipal officers for contempt, €450 for rebellion and contempt and €600 for violence, rebellion and contempt to the two police officers.
