Seine-Saint-Denis: a stuntman from the “Lupin” series detained after an urban rodeo

The young man appeared in blue hospital pajamas, at the immediate appearance of the 17th correctional chamber of the Bobigny judicial court, this Wednesday afternoon. With an ankle immobilized. The 26-year-old man appears for having engaged in two rodeos on a motorcycle and in a meeting, Sunday, in Rosny-sous-Bois and Aulnay-sous-Bois, in Seine-Saint-Denis.

Under escort in the defendants’ box, the young man walks on crutches and limps. His name appears in particular in the distribution of five episodes of “Lupin”, the Netflix series worn by Omar Sy, as a stuntman. “There is no information in the file on his professional situation. On his job as a stuntman in particular, that’s the rumor, “sweeps the public prosecutor, referring to the information revealed Tuesday evening by France Info, presenting him as a double for Omar Sy.

In any case, the Bobigny court is not in rehearsal this Wednesday afternoon. And, on Sunday, it was in no way an action film shoot. The police were not extras. And the urban acrobatics that they wanted to stop and of which the amateur of stunts is suspected are crimes in real life.

Dangerous driving, refusal to comply, aggravated violence, involuntary injuries…

The defendant is well aware of this. The charges against him are significant: seven counts of prevention, including dangerous driving, refusal to comply, aggravated violence, involuntary injuries, committed in Rosny-sous-Bois, Aulnay-sous-Bois and Le Perreux- sur-Marne (Val-de-Marne). He asked for time to prepare his defence, as this emergency procedure allows.

The court then debated the remand in custody of the defendant, pending his trial. The public prosecutor requested his incarceration, in view of his “insufficiency of guarantees of representation”, indicates the magistrate. “In addition, there is a risk of reiteration of the facts. Mr. is in a state of legal recidivism. »

After a few minutes of deliberation, the Bobigny court decided. The young man is remanded in custody and will be taken to Fleury-Mérogis (Essonne) after the hearing. His trial is postponed to September 8, before the 17th correctional chamber. The defendant’s lawyer is surprised that he is not taken to Fresnes (Val-de-Marne), given his state of health. “He has a double fracture of the malleolus due to the accident”, specifies his advice also. “I asked that he have a medical examination when he arrived, underlines the president of the court. He can then be hospitalized if necessary. »
