The man who slapped French President Emmanuel Macron during a campaign stop this week had a copy of “Mein Kampf” in his home, the BBC reported Wednesday.

Two people were arrested Tuesday after the incident in the Drome region of southeastern France. Footage shows a man shouting, “à bas la Macronie,” or “down with Macron,” before slapping him.

The BBC reported that investigators had found weapons, including a sword, a dagger, and a “collector’s rifle,” on the man’s home, as well as Adolf Hitler’s fascist manifesto.

Citing law enforcement, Reuters reported that the suspect is 28-year-old Damien Tarel, who ran a local club for “enthusiasts of medieval swordsmanship.”

A source described Tarel to the news agency as “a bit lost, a bit geeky, a bit of a gamer.”
