Outrage as Manhattan's district attorney DROPS the felony charge against BLM leader accused of assaulting an NYPD cop and releases him on bail
DA Cyrus Vance personally ordered the charges against Derrick Ingram, 28, dropped from felony assault in the second degree to misdemeanor assault, a law enforcement source told the New York Post.
Ingram is accused of injuring a female cop by shouting directly in her ear with a bullhorn on June 14, resulting in the officer being hospitalized with temporary hearing damage.
On Friday, a team of NYPD officers who were sent to arrest Ingram retreated after an hours-long standoff outside his home, where an angry crowd confronted them. Ingram later surrendered at a police precinct after the arrest team left.
