Chiara de Blasio arrested alongside NYC protesters for ‘unlawful assembly,’ sources say
Chiara de Blasio was arrested for unlawful assembly and was later released, police sources said.
CNN has reached out to Mayor de Blasio’s office for comment.
Mayor de Blasio has been very vocal this weekend about the protests, saying Saturday on Twitter that “structural racism haunts the lives of people of color.”
“What we’re seeing is an overflow due to decades of injustices,” de Blasio tweeted. “I see my own privilege and can only understand so much. I know enough to say that for the Black community every day is pervaded by racism. We will do better.”
