A number of French media outlets have reported that the bandanna-wearing man posing for a now infamous photo with Emmanuel Macron during his four-day tour of Saint Martin in late September, Reault F., was sentenced to eight months in prison, including a four-month suspended sentence for possession of drugs and resisting arrest on October 18.
Even though the ex-convict publicly vowed to the French president to stop his “foolishness” after Emmanuel Macron made him promise to never commit robbery again, he was arrested just days later.

The French president visited Saint Martin to inspect the reconstruction work after the island was hit by hurricanes Irma and Maria last year. While talking to local residents, he was pictured alongside two shitless men, one of whom flipped the bird at the cameras, which led to much criticism online, with some suggesting that Macron was unfit for office.
