‘Yellow vest’ anger as French boxer who hit police denied bail

Paris: Supporters of a French boxer filmed punching police officers during a “yellow vest” protest reacted angrily on Thursday after he was denied bail, as a fund for the injured officers topped one million euros.
Christophe Dettinger, a former light heavyweight champion caught on camera beating two riot officers, was remanded in custody by a Paris court until his trial on February 13. Dettinger has become a symbol of the deep divisions wrought by the ‘yellow vest’ movement, with some protesters hailing him as a hero and critics of the rebellion labelling his actions outrageous.
