Anti-Trump protesters blocked Interstate 95 at exit 47 in New Haven on Sunday and State Police say that EMT workers were forced to perform and emergency procedure on a patient in the back of an ambulance because it would have been too late to wait for the highway to be cleared.
After a request for assistance from New Haven police, WTIC-TV reported that state police on Saturday went with riot gear and pepper spray to the northbound Interstate 95 exit 47 ramp — Route 34 westbound.
But before the roadway was cleared, EMTs had to perform an emergency medical procedure on the patient in the ambulance rather than at a hospital due to the delay, state police told the station.
State police and New Haven police eventually found and identified the leader of the protest, Norman Clement, 67, of New Haven, on the corner of Church and Chapel streets in New Haven.
Clement ran away from police through the crowd, knocking over several of his supporters, before being apprehended, according to state police, and Clement then actively resisted arrest and was sprayed with pepper spray.
Clement was charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, interfering with an officer and reckless use of the highway by a pedestrian.
Clement was released on a $5,000 bail and was scheduled to appear at New Haven Superior Court on Monday, February 13.
Wait till you get a load of the man who led this protest. You can see why he would attract so many Nazis and fascists:
