Three suspects arrested for water-drenched police officers with buckets of water are already back in the streets of New York.
Alleged gang member Courtney Thompson, 28, turned himself in for his alleged involvement in Saturday's pervasive incident in Brownsville, Brooklyn before posting $ 3,500 bail on Wednesday night.
Thompson, 28, reported as a member of the Crips affiliate & # 39; Fresh Gangstas & # 39 ;, has been accused of government obstruction, criminal nuisance, criminal manipulation, disorderly conduct, and intimidation.
He was pictured Monday at the Brooklyn Supreme Court in a pink shirt and tie.
Chad Bowden, 28, and Isiah Scott, 23, who were arrested Wednesday in Harlem, left the Manhattan criminal court last week without bail, The New York Post reports.
Bowden and Scott are accused of criminal calamity, intimidation and disorderly conduct – although it is clear that neither was involved in an attack by police officers, with their allegations regarding the soaking of a civilian woman on July 21.
They were portrayed laughing as they left the Manhattan court together.
Authorities could only file charges against all three men.

Thompson has more than 20 previous arrests in his file, including for assault, and has been on trial since 2018 for a robbery in 2015, according to reports.
He would have been one of the many young men in Brooklyn and Harlem who had fought aggressive water fights during the blistering weekend, with shocking videos in which adults threw buckets of water over officers.
They were convicted among prominent NYPD figures, including commissioner James O & 39, Neil, who went to Twitter to share images of those who had been sought in connection with the attacks.
But the head of the NYPD sergeants' union demanded that O & Neill resigned and claimed that the police could be seriously wounded or killed.
The Sergeants Benevolent Association made their claim while sharing a video showing small children and teenagers extinguishing two officers with buckets of water and water guns.
& # 39; Defend yourself before you get seriously injured or killed & # 39 ;, according to the Thursday post of the SBA.
& # 39; These buckets can contain SOUR, BLEACH or other CHEMICALS. Get exposure numbers. O & # 39; KNEEL MUST GO, take the CLOWNS with you! & # 39;
O & # 39; Neill hit back and called union leader Ed Mullin a & # 39; keyboard gangster & # 39 ;.
In Harlem, several men appeared in court for a similar water attack, including Chad Bowden, 28, center left, and Isiah Scott, 23, center right, who were arrested Wednesday
Thompson is said to have been one of the many young men in Brooklyn and Harlem who threw buckets of water over officers during arrests
Commissioner James O & # 39; Neil went to Twitter on Wednesday to share these three images of those wanted in connection with the alleged attack after officers were flooded with water
The Harlem incident, in which two police officers were soaked while handcuffing a suspect at the hood of a black car, happened on West 115th Street and Seventh Avenue on Sunday.
The police have released surveillance photos of the men wanted in connection with those events.
NYPD assistant chief Jeffrey Maddrey went through the streets of Brooklyn on Wednesday and demanded better of the community after officers were drenched in a call for disruption in East New York and Harlem.
Multiple videos are circulating on social media showing groups of teenagers officers and other New Yorkers with liters of water. In a video (above), two officers try to enthrall a man when the group soaked them in water
& # 39; I preach to my officers to respect the community, and I am going to preach to the community, respect my officers, & # 39; he said. & # 39; That is unacceptable. The people who have done these things over the weekend will face justice. & # 39;
NYPD Chief Terrence Monahan responded to the incident on Twitter. & # 39; The video & # 39; s of agents who are flooded with water and objects hurled at them while arresting in #Harlem are reprehensible & # 39 ;, wrote Monahan.
& # 39; NYC police and communities have made – together – remarkable progress, but EVERY New Yorker MUST show respect for our police. They deserve nothing less. & # 39;
The officers see the man in the back of his patrol car
He doubled on his comments on Wednesday and added: & # 39; These are not children who play in water who do this. These are adults, men, who think it's good.
& # 39; A message for everyone: if you think it is good to pour water on a cop or disrupt an arrest, that is not the case and you will be arrested.
In one video that was shared at the time, two officers tried to enthrall a man when the group drenched them with water. The two officers continued to arrest the man even while one of them was hit in the back by a red bucket.
The man who threw the bucket is one of the people the police are looking for.
