NYC Protest Organizer Turns Himself Into Police After Hours-Long Standoff With NYPD: Reports

Source: NBC

A protest organizer and frequent leader of marches in support of Black Lives Matter turned himself into the New York City Police Department Saturday morning after an hours-long standoff with officers one day earlier, multiple reports confirm.

His actions come after the NYPD spent an estimated five hours outside of the protester's Hell's Kitchen apartment on Friday in an attempt to arrest the man accused of assaulting an officer at a June protest.

Derrick Ingram marched with a hundred protesters to the Midtown North Precinct on West 56th Street Saturday morning where he turned himself into police, The New York Times reported. A police spokesperson told the Times that Ingram was arrested for second-degree assault from a June 14 incident where he allegedly used a megaphone to yell into the ear of an officer. The spokesperson said he caused the officer "pain and protracted impairment of hearing."

Friday's arrest attempt flooded social media by late morning after Ingram started live streaming the incident on Instagram. Ingram, a leader of Warriors in the Garden, a group of organizers advocating for systemic change and police accountability, began documenting the situation online after officers approached his apartment door to make the arrest.

1. Anyone think if a cop yelled into the ear of a black protester with a megaphone

causing him or her discomfort s/he'd get arrested for assault?

2. A common tactic is...

A common tactic is to arrest and persecute the leaders of a group or protest in order to set an example. It doesn't matter, necessarily what the grounds are or if they charges are valid.

This has happened over and over and there are other examples.

9. Correct.

You ABSOLUTELY need a helicopter to complete an arrest in an apartment in Hells Kitchen.

That, and sharks with laser beams.....

13. Ya know

I wonder about at what point these things cross over from official business to personal business. And why are we taxpayers paying for officers to persue their personal hobbies?

14. It Seems Like A Vendetta

First of all, it was overkill with all the cops and cars and there should be an investigation as to why it happened in the first place

7. BLM lives in heads of the police

Dozens of police, hours long standoff, probably thousands and thousands of wasted tax payer money, for one black man who impaired one police officer's hearing.

BLM has power and the police know it... A change is gonna come! Never stop fighting!

8. They reviewed a lot of video tape to find something they could charge him with

but only after their debacle that didn't produce results they wanted.

11. Pissed, furious, seething, enraged. No words strong enough to express

the abject anger and disgust that I feel living in this fascist totalitarian nightmare that drumph has foist upon us. How many peaceful protesters were blinded, concussed, beaten, gassed, shot, kidnapped, trampled, and terrorized by these lawless, immunized Brownshirt/police abusive thugs? And one fuckmunch pig motherfucker gets an earful from a bullhorn and thatís assault????
