The police used their electric pulse pistol to subdue him. A resident of Saint-Paul-lès-Dax, in the Landes, tried to attack with a knife and a machete the four members of the police who came to arrest him, indicates Sud Ouest .

Originally, a fight had pitted the suspect against another man who, injured, had taken refuge in his car, before being hospitalized. The situation escalated when the quartet of police officers went to the apartment of the person they were looking for, in this commune on the outskirts of Dax. The man ended up in police custody, like his partner, who would also have rebelled during the arrest.
