Actress Ellen Barkin took to Twitter to describe being forcefully attacked by a New York City Police Offer. Barkin was walking onto the street when a police offer forcefully pushed her with both hands onto the sidewalk. She also talks about how she saw Occupy Wall Street participants being arrested for no reason.
Here is what the Ellen posted on her Twitter account:
“Just threatened on my street by NYPD,cop shoved me,both hands,onto sidewalk..Is it a crime 2 stand in the street in NY?WTF is going on here?”
Barkin’s rumored boyfriend, director Sam Levinson, apparently captured the incident on video.
I really hope this is some kind of misunderstanding because this just doesn’t make sense!
