After punching cop, NYC protester strolls into police HQ to claim personal property (Video)

And this year’s Anti-Police Protest Chutzpah Award goes to 22-year-old Yotemeli Sayer, who assaulted not one but two NYPD officers attempting to keep the peace at noisy protests, then had the temerity to stop by the station house to reclaim his personal property. Unfortunately for Sayer, his actions were caught on video (there’s a lot of that going around these days), and now he is in seriously hot water.

The New York Post explains that Sayer punched a sergeant at one rally and fled the scene. An hour and half later, he assaulted a second officer at a second rally, but this time was arrested.

Cops confiscated his fanny pack before tossing him in a holding cell.

Buy when he returned on Tuesday to pick it up at One Police Plaza, officers busted him for the first assault, police sources said.

Officers used video footage of protests posted on social media to determine Sayer had roughed up two cops at two different protests on the same day, police sources said.

A YouTube clip captured the assault, which was uploaded the same night.

It shows demonstrators chanting, “Eric Garner, Michael Brown, shut it down, shut it down! and “I can’t breathe!”

Sayer was charged with two counts of assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, and rioting, police said.
