An artist, Oriel, was displaying his art in Washington Sq, NYC when he was approached by Park Enforcement Patrol who wanted him to remove his art. He refused, they then moved to arrest him. Three PEP tackle him for what seems like forever–video was immediately posted on YouTube.Another “White shirt” moved in and accelerated the struggle, forcing him to the ground. This, by the way, is while all the time park goers are watching, filming, walking by. Eventually, the NYPD came and Oriel was arrested and taken away.

This all occurred due to the ridiculous rule, implemented in 2018, that art and music for sale at Washington Square Park must be on a table, not on the ground.
