According to a report by Reuters, a former French boxing champion surrendered to police after being filmed raining punches on riot officers during a 'yellow vest' protest on a bridge over the river Seine. After turning himself over to police, Christophe Dettinger, a twice national light-heavyweight champion, has reportedly received tens of thousands of euros in public donations, infuriating government ministers. While some people have hailed Dettinger as a hero, senior officials strongly disagree. Marlene Schiappa, junior minister for equality, said, "Contributing to a fundraising kitty to support someone who attacked an officer is tantamount to being an accomplice to these grave acts of violence."
