An employee for the United States courts in New York City has been arrested after she was allegedly caught yelling and walking towards Donald Trump during the embattled ex-president’s civil fraud trial.
The employee — whose name has not been released to the public — allegedly disrupted the trial when she claimed that she wanted to “assist him” with his case.
She was charged with contempt of court for disrupting a court proceeding, state court spokesperson Lucian Chalfen said.
Chalfen said the woman had been yelling out to Trump that she wanted to help, though reporters in the courtroom did not hear her raise her voice.
She was later heard screaming in the courthouse lobby as officers removed her from the building.
Chalfen added: “None of the parties were ever in any danger.”
