The Paris Court of Appeal ordered, Monday, February 27, the provisional detention of Pierre Palmade with a warrant of committal. Justified by a “risk of reiteration of the facts and to promote the continuation of investigations”, according to a source familiar with the matter, this decision gave rise to the placement in prison of the comedian at the Kremlin-Bicêtre hospital (Val-de-Marne). The Melun prosecutor’s office estimated that “the state of health of the person concerned” was not compatible with a transfer to a penitentiary establishment at this stage.

Pierre Palmade was previously under house arrest in the neurology department at Kremlin-Bicêtre. Victim of a stroke on Saturday, he had had his electronic bracelet removed and was under police surveillance. Ten days earlier, the 54-year-old actor had been indicted forare counts of “manslaughter and involuntary injuries” with aggravating circumstances, after the accident he caused February 10 under the influence of cocaine. The collision left three seriously injured, including a pregnant woman who lost an unborn child.

Pierre Palmade is also concerned by two other investigations, opened for “violation of the legislation on narcotics” and for possession of child pornography images. He was reported to law enforcement in the days following his accident.
