New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's daughter was arrested on Saturday night during what appeared to be a violent protest at Union Square.
25 year old Chiara de Blasio was involved in a riot on 12th St. and Broadway where violent demonstrators were throwing objects at police officers.
Check out what the New York Daily News reported:
The mayor’s daughter didn’t toss anything, but refused to leave the area when cops ordered her to do so, sources said.
She was arrested at 10:30 p.m. Saturday, given a desk appearance ticket charging her with unlawful assemblty, and released, one source said.
She gave her dad’s Gracie Mansion address to the arrest cops.
According to another source, Chiara has been quarantining at Gracie Mansion with her brother, Dante, mom, Chirlane McCray, and the mayor.
The NYPD made 345 arrests by early Sunday after a chaotic night of protests and looting in New York City over the death of George Floyd that saw 33 cops injured and 47 police vehicles damaged, sources said.
De Blasio should spend less time attacking President Donald Trump and more time learning to be a good parent. Instead of taking responsibility for his terrible leadership, de Blasio pointed fingers at the President for the violent riots in his own city.
“I can tell you this, and this is the blunt truth, the president of the United States helped to create this atmosphere, and that’s the tragedy here,” the failed mayor said on Saturday during a press conference. “It doesn’t matter what your party affiliation is, doesn’t matter what you think of President Trump, there’s been an uptick in tension and hatred and division since he came along. It’s just a fact.”
“And it’s not the reason for any specific act, but it has helped to poison the atmosphere. So, we gotta’ get back to leaders talking about unity.”
“We always talk about respect for peaceful protest, respect for communities, respect for different points of view, and obviously that’s not been the tone set from the top in Washington, and that’s one of the reasons we’re in this mess we’re in,” de Blasio added.

The New York City mayor also discussed a video showing a NYPD driving at a large violent crowd of rioters.
“The video was upsetting and I wish the officers hadn’t done that, but I also understood that they didn’t start the situation. The situation was started by a group of protesters converging on a police vehicle, attacking that vehicle. It’s unacceptable,” he said. “It’s inappropriate for protesters to surround a police vehicle and threaten police officers. That’s wrong on its face,” de Blasio continued.
“A different element has come into play here,” de Blasio added. “Trying to hurt police officers and trying to damage their vehicles — if a police officer is in that situation they have to get out of that situation.”
The mayor concluded by calling out the violent protesters, saying, “create violence … will get arrested tonight."
