A French court has sentenced a 28-year-old man to four months in prison for slapping President Macron in the face. Damien Tarel was quickly arrested after the swipe that caught Macron's left cheek with an audible thwack on Tuesday, as the French leader was greeting a crowd. The court in the southeastern city of Valence convicted Tarel Thursday on a charge of violence against a person invested with public authority.
