As I was watching… It didn’t seem as if he was attacked. More the less, wasn’t an easy route. If he didn’t have officers there he would have been attacked, more than likely, yes. I don’t consider 50 people running up to you while you have police protecting you ‘getting attacked’… I mean… If that’s the case people get attacked a lot. Especially famous people.
Maybe he meant the time during all of this when an officer walks up and shoves someone then yells ‘move back’ after he shoves him, the man shoves the officer back, and the officer then stumbles into the back of Paul. If anyone was attacked it was the officer.
