    Seyssinet-Pariset

    The facts took place on Friday, March 20. As reported by France Bleu, the inhabitants of Seyssinet-Pariset (Isère) had a huge fright during an inspection.

    While the gendarmerie was in the process of ensuring compliance with the confinement set up for five days, a motorist refused to comply with the police. The latter then accelerated and tried to charge the barrier. According to France Bleu, the vehicle was however neutralized by the motorcycle brigade of the gendarmerie.

    They were forced to open fire on the approaching car, fortunately without causing injuries. Three people were in the vehicle.

    The driver was taken into police custody for “endangering others” and “refusing to comply” before being summoned for an immediate appearance Monday March 23 at the Grenoble Criminal Court. This episode comes at a time when more and more cities, like Nice, Béziers, Montpellier or even Perpignan have decided to introduce a curfew.

    In addition, Christophe Castaner indicated that the Sentinel force for fighting terrorism would be “ramped up” to help in the fight against Covid-19 and respect for containment.
