A courtroom drama unfolded during a recent hearing involving former U.S. President Donald Trump.
A woman, later identified as Jennifer Hannigan, a court secretary, interrupted the proceedings, leading to her arrest. According to reports, including one from the New York Post, Hannigan tried to approach Trump during the hearing.
She was subsequently charged with disrupting the Manhattan Supreme Court session after she allegedly shouted in Trump's direction.
The police emphasized that no one was in danger during the incident.
Trump remained composed and focused on the court case when speaking to the media afterward.
The hearing was part of an ongoing legal battle where Trump is accused of lying about his wealth. Chief Prosecutor Letitia James alleges that Trump exaggerated his fortune by $3.6 billion.
Trump's lawyers are seeking to dismiss the case, insisting that their client is indeed a billionaire. The case is separate from four other lawsuits against Trump, including one accusing him of attempting to alter the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, which he lost to Democrat Joe Biden.
Trump has pleaded not guilty in all four cases.
