Tommy Robinson resigned from court after a judge said his contempt of the court case was "too complex" and referred him to the Attorney General.
The London Registrar, Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC, said that an "adequate interrogation" was needed and released him on bail minutes after the 35-year-old activist told his supporters that he had "won no matter what happened to him."
Robinson appeared at the Old Bailey in London this morning accused of contempt of court for allegedly endangering a trial by Asian sexual gangs in Leeds for filming people involved in videos on social networks.
A large crowd of supporters, some of whom were seen drinking beer cans and cider, had gathered to demonstrate outside the court at the same time as the audience.
Robinson, the real name of Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was released from prison in August, after three prominent judges overruled an initial contempt court ruling in Leeds in May.

Hundreds of people have gathered outside the Old Bailey this morning, they have imagined, they have waved flags and they have sung to support Robinson.
Robinson, dressed in a gray suit, pink tie and red poppy, sat behind his lawyer in court and spoke softly to confirm his identity.
Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC began the hearing by emphasizing "to avoid doubts" that there should be no photographs or recordings inside the court building.
However, he told a meeting of journalists gathered that the live tweets from the court would be fine.
He said the accusations against Robinson were that he violated an order under Section 4 (2) of the Court Dismissorship Act of 1981 and that he issued a transmission that "entailed a substantial risk of serious harm to a trial in progress. " in the Crown Court of Leeds & # 39;
Judge Hilliard said the case should be addressed to the Attorney General for consideration after receiving a statement from Robinson on Monday.
The court heard that, in the current context, lawyers could not conduct an appropriate questioning of the evidence.
"I think it is necessary to analyze many of the details of what Mr. Yaxley-Lennon said in the broadcast to get an overview of what happened," the judge said.
"I am satisfied in the light of the problems as they appear now, as they emerged from yesterday's statement, that the interrogation of Mr. Yaxley-Lennon is necessary for a proper and complete examination and resolution of the case that is in the interest public. & # 39;
Speaking to the crowd, in the photo, Robinson said that the country was now aware of the gangs of Muslim rapes that terrorize the UK & # 39;

Robinson also claimed that the media was the "enemy of the people" when talking to the crowd.
Speaking before the hearing, Robinson said: "No matter what happens today, I already won," he said.
& # 39; His attempts to silence and detain people who are aware of the gangs of Muslim violations that are terrorizing our nation.
& # 39; The whole world is watching now & # 39;
He blamed the government, the police and social services for "sacrificing a generation of our daughters at the altar of multiculturalism."
He also called the media "the enemy of the people" and the crowd responded by shouting "shame."
Before appearing before the court, he posted a photo of himself on Instagram, smiling widely and wearing a suit on a train.
In the Instragram publication, Robinson also made an ironic comment in reference to the cousin and founder of the English Defense League, Kevin Carroll, and said: "I believe that @thekevincarroll will be convicted today. It's your turn for a bird.

Some people watched from inside the nearby buildings as the crowd swelled in London.
Many supporters took out their phones to film Robinson before the appearance.

Robinson was flanked by friends and supporters when he entered the courtroom this morning.
The Metropolitan Police and their colleagues in the city of London forced manned barricades out of Old Bailey while supporters of Tommy Robinson unite before the return to court of the contempt case of the founder of the English Defense League.
The flags of England and the Union, like those of Ukip, were waved outside the Central Criminal Court when dozens of protesters gathered on Tuesday morning.
Under the watchful eye of the officers, the mostly male crowd sang "Oh Tommy Robinson."
A small group of anti-fascist activists confronted them from behind the scenes, where the fans anticipated a speech by the founder of EDL.
Robinson was initially imprisoned for 13 months, but the sentence was overturned by the Court of Appeal pending a new hearing.
Robinson says he expects to be sent back to prison, having fired his legal team before his contempt hearing this week, as it was revealed that he benefited from a "massive pay day" of public attention and £ 2 million in donations after his stay in prison earlier this year.
The Sunday Times reported that Robinson, in an interview with the German political blog, PI News, said: "I fired my lawyers because they tried to negotiate an agreement in which I apologize and admit guilt, and then, if I do, I'm going to home". .
& # 39; And I said, I'll never do that.
"I'd rather go to jail for the next 25 years than accept the guilt for telling the truth."
In his last appearance, Robinson was led to court amid a large police presence as supporters, holding flags of the Union and St. George, sang his name, while photographers and camera operators fought for the position.
And during the brief hearing, a new video was posted showing Robinson in a window inside the court building on the Twitter account.
In filming, Robinson says "that's a good feeling" before promising to go and greet the crowd of hundreds of supporters who cheer and sing outside.
The video, which is believed to have been made in the canteen on the second floor of Old Bailey, was seen more than 160,000 times in the afternoon.
Flags fluttered on the streets of London, while others sang songs in support of the former EDL co-founder
Many of the supporters were filming the demonstration while carrying flags and banners.
The police were also present to control the demonstration, with a counter-protest against Robinson that also took place nearby.
Article 41 of the Criminal Justice Act of 1925 makes it an offense to photograph persons within judicial premises.
At the time of incarceration, Judge Marson told Robinson that his actions could have caused the trial to be repeated, costing "hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pounds."
On Friday, 20 gang members were jailed for a combined total of more than 220 years after being convicted of sexually abusing vulnerable girls since age eleven in Huddersfield.
How the sexual gang trial led to the imprisonment of Tommy Robinson
A judge found that Huddersfield's grooming trials were put at risk by the antics of the founder of the English Defense League, Tommy Robinson (pictured, when he was arrested).
He eluded information restrictions designed to ensure that procedures were fair. The case report was postponed because the defendants were being treated in separate trials.
In such cases, reporting is sometimes postponed until the final case so juries can not be prejudiced when reading the reports of previous trials.
The video footage showed him approaching the defendants outside the Crown Court of Leeds.
The video was seen on social media 250,000 times in hours.
Robinson was sentenced to 13 months in prison by Judge Geoffrey Marson QC in May, but was released from HMP Onley in Rugby on 1 August after successfully contesting the contempt of the court ruling.
The reporting ban has been lifted and the 20 cases are no longer active.
However, Robinson could be sent back to jail if a contempt of court decision is made at a new hearing, which will take place at the Old Bailey on October 23.
