(Newser) – Nicolas Sarkozy got a little roughed up today while shaking hands in southwest France. A man grabbed Sarkozy roughly by the shoulder as the French president made a public appearance in Brax, reports the AP. Security quickly tackled the man, identified only as a 32-year-old. He wasn't armed and remains under questioning. Sarkozy continued shaking hands afterward.
