An MP in French president Emmanuel Macron's En Marche! party has been detained in custody after allegedly putting a rival politician in intensive care by smacking him with a motorbike helmet.
Two police officials explained today that M'jid El Guerrab was being questioned over a fight he had on Wednesday with Socialist Party lawmaker Boris Faure.
Media - El - Guerrab - Motorbike - Centre
It has been alleged in French media that El Guerrab was riding a motorbike in the centre of Paris when he saw Faure - with whom he is said to have fallen out last year - and went over to him.
They briefly spoke before the encounter became violent and they had to be separated by nearby guards.

But El Guerrab has defended his actions by claiming that Faure grabbed him by the arm and called him a 'dirty Arab' and an 'impostor'.
