VIDEO: Protester Accused of Punching NYPD Officers

A 22-year-old demonstrator has been accused of punching two NYPD officers during last week's protests of a Staten Island grand jury's decision to not indict a police officer in the alleged chokehold death of Eric Garner, reports NBC New York.

Yotameli Sayer was charged Wednesday with resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, disorderly conduct and multiple counts of assault after officers in Union Square and at the Staten Island Ferry terminal in lower Manhattan were both sucker-punched Thursday night, authorities say. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment and his lawyer declined to comment.

Sayer, of Bushwick, was arrested after the officer in Union Square was punched at about 10:30 p.m., the NYPD says.

After arresting the man, officers were able to link Sayer to the punching at the ferry terminal about two hours earlier, the NYPD says.
