<p>Speaking from his hospital bed, Rodrigues told <em>LCI </em>television that he was also hit with a stingball grenade. </p>

<p>"Everything happened very quickly. They threw a grenade at me and I took a (rubber) bullet. I was attacked twice -- a grenade to the foot, and the bullet."</p>

<p>In a video of the incident, Rodrigues can be heard <strong>warning protesters to leave the Bastille </strong>due to far-left "black bloc" agitators who had arrived to attack the police. </p>
