The police, who arrived on site for the first time around 10 p.m., first fined a person for nighttime commotion.

But the evening did not end there.

The police were called back around 2 a.m. as the festivities continued.

They invited the participants to leave the premises, but they remained between the front door of the building and the street.

An official then slipped behind them to prevent them from returning to the accommodation, and a party animal, while trying to close a carriage door, injured this agent.

The individual was arrested, indicates this same police source, while the 17 other people were fined up to 135 euros for "non-compliance with health measures".

According to

Le Parisien

, the man who would have called the police to put an end to noise pollution would be none other than the former President Nicolas Sarkozy.
