A massive brawl broke out between civilians and officers when a woman in a blue jacket and a man in a black hoodie (both on the right of the photo) tried to get the woman away from the officers.
In a video Livito posted to Instagram, Davis, wearing a pink cap, was seen handcuffed by a police car while screaming at the crowd.
The man who posted the video can be heard claiming that the woman told police to “lock her up” when she returned for the speaker.
