There has been another arrest in this summer’s spate of caught-on-video water dousing of New York City police officers.
Police say 21-year-old Darnell Hillard was arrested Monday on charges of assault, resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, riot, disorderly conduct and harassment. Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
Police say Hillard was involved in a July 21 incident in which video showed officers getting drenched by buckets of thrown water while making an arrest in Harlem. One officer was hit in the head with a tossed bucket.
Several others have been arrested in the drenching of two police officers by a crowd with buckets of water in the Bronx and the dousing of two police officers in Brooklyn.
