‘He is accused of organising an illegal demonstration on a public road, carrying an offensive weapon, and taking part in group violence,’ said a Paris prosecuting source. ‘Many others are under investigation for similar public order offences.’

Today, there was trouble around the River Seine, where police unleashed gas and flash balls at a crowd of around 2000 Gilets Jaunes.

All were attempting to march on the National Assembly, the French parliament, but were held back.

This led to fighting on the foot bridges crossing the river.

Ten members of the movement have died at blockades organised at major roads around France, while hundreds of others have been injured in rioting.

The Vests have been protesting since November 17 and, despite a range of concessions by President Macron including scrapping green taxes of diesel and petrol, continue to call for him to step down.

Many have been arrested, including some 700 who were held in custody on a single day in Paris in December.

High-end shops including luxury fashion boutiques were today boarded up in Paris, along with banks and post offices.

This follows major acts of vandalism, including the Arc de Triomphe itself being attacked.       

On Friday, government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux denounced those still protesting as ‘agitators who want insurrection and, basically, to overthrow the government’.
