An officer ordered White to land and shouted: & # 39; What are you doing, man? & # 39;
White was reluctant without incident and was later accused of impending police officers, criminal possession of weapons and obstructing government administration
He was then taken to Lincoln Hospital for an evaluation of mental health.
White was imprisoned on charges of impending police officers, criminal possession of weapons and obstructing government administration, the New York Post reported.
White, whose criminal record contains eight previous arrests, including on charges of rape and possession of weapons, was later released on his own initiative without having instituted bail.
The outcome of the incident was that some people in the murmur of the NYPD complained that the Bronx District Attorney's Office White should not have given free access.
& # 39; What if he had two guns? He could have shot the police, & a police source told The Post.
The suspect must appear in court on July 16 to honor the charge.
