Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 French President Nicolas Sarkozy was grabbed by a man while greeting the public in southwest France. Sarkozy was shaking hands with citizens of Brax when a 32-year-old music school student reached out and grabbed the president, attempting to punch him. Within seconds, the assailant was tackled to the ground by security forces, leaving Sarkozy startled but unharmed. The man is currently being held at Agen police station, a spokesman said, and the motive behind the attack is unknown. Sarkozy, elected in 2007 and expected to seek re-election in 2012, has endured various heckling and threats during his presidency. The French leader's poll ratings have been lagging for several months, dipping below 30% approval in 2010. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/8609059/Nicolas-Sarkozy-attacked-during-walkabout.html http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/europe/06/30/france.sarkozy.grabbed/index.html?hpt=hp_t2 http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2011/06/30/137533754/french-president-sarkozy-physically-attacked-while-shaking-hands http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1323562/Nicolas-Sarkozy-unpopular-French-President-decades.html
