A French police chief is being investigated after allegedly beating up a defenceless black man.
Numerous videos show Didier Andrieux, who was given a Legion of Honour at New Year, holding the unnamed victim up against a wall as he repeatedly punches him.
The attack happened on Saturday afternoon in the south east city of Touoln during violent protests by the anti-government Yellow Vests movement.
"Andrieux can be seen attacking the man, who is not armed and is entirely peaceful," said an investigating source.
"People watching are expressing their horror, and they include many who are appalled by police brutality against ethnic minorities.
"After the attack, Andrieux goes off and punches a Yellow Vest protester who has been pinned up against a car.
