Better than having a shoe thrown at you....

N. Sarkozy gets grabbed by some random idiot.

There is a silly myth, in the U.S. at least, that French troops / police are cowards. The fact is that the French upper level officer corps was corrupt and cowardly, for a few decades of the previous century. But if you try to mess with any enlisted level French troops, or elite police unit, this will be a cause of considerable regret to you. They are fearless and brutal. The grab-man may be in for a difficult hour or so.

From my own brief experience with the French Army and Navy, it is quite true. Most of the enlisted and junior officers I met were dedicated warriors.
