Woman Charged With Spitting In Cop’s Face Is NYU Grad, Former Nadler Intern

By  | 

The woman who was arrested after allegedly spitting in the face of an officer Wednesday is a graduate of New York University and a former intern for Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, the New York Post reported.

Devina Singh, 24, was identified as the woman seen on video yelling “Fuck you, fascist” at a uniformed New York City Police Department (NYPD) officer before she allegedly spit in the officer’s face, according to the New York Post. The 24-year-old was promptly yanked to the ground and arrested on charges of harassment, obstruction and violation of local law, the Post reported.

The 24-year-old claimed she spat on the officer because “[the NYPD] hit us with their bikes repeatedly,” she told the Post.

A total of around 60 people were arrested during the Wednesday demonstration, according to the Post. Another woman was apprehended by law enforcement after she purportedly punched a high-ranking officer in the face, the outlet reported.
