Authorities arrested a Black Lives Matter Founder After Following an altercation with a police officer.

According to The Daily Mail, Hank Newsome was arrested on Tuesday following a threatening confrontation with a police officer. The incident, which was captured on a camera, saw Newsome tower over the officer and shout expletives at the law enforcement agent.

The incident occurred inside a courtroom, and Newsome directed the F-word at the officer multiple times. The incident, which ended with a shoving match, saw Newsome describe the officer as the private part of a woman, among other obscenities.

Authorities said Newsome was taken into custody and given three summonses for disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration.

“I’m not going to sit here and say that I wasn’t vocal, I care a lot. Yes, I was vocal. I care a lot. A man was hit in the head with a cooler and killed,” Newsome said following the incident.

Councilwoman Vickie Paladino blasted Newsome’s antics, adding that the officers should have tased him.

“If you are within reach of an officer’s firearm and behaving in an unambiguously hostile and threatening manner like this, you should be tased at the very least,” Paladino wrote in an X post. “Lethal force should not be out of the question either if tasers are ineffective and the situation escalates. It is beyond absurd that our police have to put up with this. Showing even an ounce of deference to this kind of abject hostility only invites more, and makes the job that much more dangerous. Criminals used to understand that actions like this crossed a line and would lead to bad outcomes. Now they know there are no consequences so they push even further. It’s a very dangerous game, enabled by progressives who cheer the chaos.”

Newsome had been in the courthouse for the trial of a police officer accused of killing a man after throwing a watercooler at the deceased as he fled a drug bust.

The police officer, identified as Sgt. Erik Duran, was working as an undercover agent on the Bronx Narcotics Division when he conducted a buy-and-bust operation.

Duran, who was in plain clothes at the time, attempted to arrest  Eric Duprey after he sold drugs to him. However, Duprey fled the scene on his scooter, causing Duran to throw a water cooler at him. The impact from the cooler caused the alleged drug dealer to lose control of his scooter and strike a parked Jeep. Duprey was pronounced dead on the scene.

Duran has since pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
