While in France, I was taking video of a police operation (they were evicting some squatters in caravans from a field, about 50 of them).

One of the police officers quickly approached me and asked me to stop, saying it's illegal, to give him my id etc etc....

Well, I offered to delete the video, and he let me go. Is it really illegal to take pictures/videos of the police in France (I was not really even focusing on the police, but on the caravans), or was he just abusing power?
