    New York City mayoral candidate Shaun Donovan was arrested by police during a demonstration near the city’s Holland Tunnel marking the first anniversary of the death of George Floyd on May 25.

    Local media reported that Donovan joined a group that blocked traffic as they knelt in the middle of the street for 9 minutes and 29 seconds — the same length of time that former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck one year ago.

    Video shared by Jeremy Edwards, a member of Donovan’s campaign team, shows the candidate being led away with his hands bound with plastic zip-ties during his arrest.

    The cofounder of the Greater New York chapter of Black Lives Matter, Hawk Newsome, was also arrested, local media reported.

    Further video shows the group of protesters, including Donovan and Newsome, demonstrating before the arrests.
