A 19-year-old student who threw an egg at French President Emmanuel Macron has been admitted to a psychiatric hospital

PARIS — A 19-year-old student who threw an egg at French President Emmanuel Macron has been admitted to a psychiatric hospital after a medical exam, prosecutors said Tuesday.

The man was detained, and an investigation was opened for “assault on a person in a position of public authority,” Lyon prosecutors said. He wasn’t previously known to police.

The student underwent a psychiatric evaluation which determined an “absence of discernment and need for hospitalization,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement Tuesday.
