Chiara de Blasio, 25, was among a group of around 100 people who threw objects at the police. The mayor’s daughter did not launch any projectiles, but refused to leave.
She was arrested at 10:30 p.m. Saturday for illegal gathering, and then released. She gave the official address of her father, Gracie Mansion, when he was arrested.
New York police arrested 345 people on Sunday night during a night of chaos in the city to protest the death of George Floyd. 33 police officers were injured and 47 police vehicles damaged.
The mayor spoke soon after, denouncing the violence during the protests. “If you go out peacefully to express a need for change, you have been heard and change will come. It’s time to go home so we can all move on, “said Bill de Blasio. “But those who simply want to express hatred towards the police by using violence will be arrested. ”
