Here is my own video of the moment @CarolineRussell was arrested for her non violent protest #StopTheCoup #DefendDemocracy
This is getting a lot of attention now so I feel the need to clarify a few things that I personally saw. This will no doubt not be the whole story /1
Caroline was arrested under Section12/14 of the Public Order Act, most frequently used to arrest protestors /2
I did not see any reason to believe that the police knew who she was, but I will not affirm that they definitely didn't /3
Although my video shows they originally tried to handcuff her behind the back (clearly unnecessary) she was eventually handcuffed round the front, there are other vids showing this /4
Caroline did not at any point attempt to resist arrest and was very calm given the ridiculous numbers of officers surrounding her /5
Finally, I am not legally trained. Please direct your questions to @metpoliceuk. @GBCLegal might also be interested in this /6
Video of the police initially moving in en masse /7
