A motorist from Meyzieu has been in police custody since Friday afternoon for attempted murder of a person holding public authority. He is understood to have deliberately hit a gendarme on a motorcycle with his vehicle while the two were traveling on the Laurent-Bonnevay ring road.
A swerve before fleeing
Dangerous driving by the motorist is believed to be the cause. While driving, the biker, who was not on duty, would have declined his function to the driver of the Peugeot 208 to ask him to respect the Highway Code. Displeased, the latter would then have kicked the wheel before fleeing. Despite his fall, the motorcyclist was not seriously injured. According to our information, it would be a lieutenant stationed in Ain.
Arrested within the hour
The driver was quickly identified by the motorway CRS and arrested within an hour at his home in Meyzieu. The viewing of CCTV images confirmed that the gesture was voluntary. The 24-year-old motorist had no driver’s license.
