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

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.
