An investigation has been launched after a court employee in New York interrupted the civil fraud trial of former President Donald Trump. The employee has been placed on administrative leave as a result of the incident.
The individual in question has been accused of committing second-degree contempt of court.
As Trump was present in the courtroom, a woman whose identity remains unknown stood up and made her way toward the front. She shouted out to Trump, expressing her desire to offer her assistance.
Court officers prevented her from approaching Trump or any of the lawyers present.
According to a statement released on X, the employee was able to leave the courtroom and courthouse safely with the assistance of uniformed court officers. The details of the incident remain undisclosed at this time.
After being escorted out of the courtroom, she was taken into custody by the officers and placed in a squad car belonging to the New York State court.
The worker will continue to be on leave while the occurrence is under investigation. The individual is currently not permitted to access any UCS establishment until further notice.
Currently, Trump is present in New York City for his civil fraud trial, which alleges that he has artificially inflated the worth of his business empire.
