Arrests and Chaos Erupt During NYC Protest [Video]



  • Eleven people were arrested on Monday night during a protest in Manhattan over the subway chokehold death of Jordan Neely.
  • The protest took place outside the Broadway-Lafayette subway station, where Neely was killed by Daniel Penny a week ago.
  • NYPD Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey confirmed the arrests, and a Molotov cocktail was discovered at the scene.

Tensions flared in Manhattan on Monday night as protests erupted over the subway chokehold death of Jordan Neely, leading to the arrest of eleven people.

The protest took place outside the Broadway-Lafayette subway station, where Neely was killed by another straphanger, Daniel Penny, just one week prior.

During a press conference on Monday night, NYPD Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey confirmed the arrests and reported the discovery of a Molotov cocktail at the scene, although no one has been arrested or tied to the dangerous item.


Most of those arrested were charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration over sound amplification, according to law enforcement sources.

Freelance news photographer Stephanie Keith was among those arrested, as seen in photos and footage from the scene. Authorities claim that she interfered with at least three arrests before being handcuffed herself.

Another man, who was seen with a bloodied face, was also taken into custody.


Monday’s unrest followed a Saturday protest in which demonstrators disrupted an Upper East Side train station by jumping on the subway tracks, in response to Neely’s death.

The Monday night vigil began with a few people chanting “Jordan Neely” in memory of the homeless 30-year-old, who had a history of mental illness.

However, the event soon turned chaotic, with social media footage showing protesters struggling with police officers, leading to arrests. Police stated that protesters using amplified sound needed a permit and were warned multiple times before being arrested.

      They don’t care about the facts – only the color. Racism at its ugliest.
      Too bad they missed the third rail.

      Protesting is not wrong but the ones who show to make trouble are the ones that need to be arrested. But that never happens, cause the ones that are there to make trouble will be protected by the others so the protest ends up as a riot.

    Idiots protesting for known criminals are either so stupid or have a rap sheet themselves. It’s time this garbage be brought in, charged and put in prison or open up the mental asylums again. Snyone that thinks mentally deranged criminals should run free has absolutely no common sense or any morals of right versus wrong. If these cases were dealt with properly to put these people where they are supposed to be we wouldn’t have to worry about this abd protect decent citizens.

    There is no loss on this criminal, he got what he had coming to him abd it WAN’T from the guy holding him down. These blacks think they can pull a Floyd everytime time an issue arises.
