A woman was arrested for allegedly knocking a camera out of the hand of an NYPD detective during an anti-police protest in Manhattan on Sunday, authorities said.
The NYPD released footage of the 4:40 p.m. confrontation near the intersection of 38th Street and 10th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen that resulted in the arrest of 25-year-old Nelae White.
At first, White can be seen in the footage stopping to say something to the detective carrying the camera as nearby protests chant, “No cops, no KKK, no facist USA.”
Moments later, White allegedly smacks the recording device away from the detective and tries to calmly walk away before she’s tackled to the ground by police, the video shows.
Several other protesters on bikes were knocked down during the scuffle, but nobody else was arrested during the episode, according to police.
As officers detained White, other cops showed up and formed a line to keep the other protesters at a distance, according to the video.
White, a Bushwick, Brooklyn resident, was charged with criminal mischief.
