Devina Singh, a 24-year-old NYU alum and former intern for Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), has been arrested and charged with obstruction of governmental administration, harassment, and violation of local law after an altercation with a New York City police officer.
Singh held her cell phone in her hand, presumably filming herself, as she shouted profanities at an officer in riot gear. "F--- you, fascist!" she screamed twice, before proceeding to spit in the officer's face. She was then forcibly taken into custody.
Singh, who has earned the online nickname "phlegm fatale" for her antics, has been arrested in New York at least twice before. She was charged with resisting during a September riot and again for unlawful assembly during an October protest.
🔦 Shouting in close proximity in the midst of a pandemic is considered dangerous, as is intentionally spitting on another person's face.
