Leshia Evans, a 28-year-old mother from New York works as a nurse. She attended the Baton Rouge protest in Louisiana over the shooting of a black man by police.
Standing in a long flowing dress with her arms crossed, gazing into a line of heavily armed police she’s tackled by two heavily-armed and armored officers who arrest her and put her in handcuffs.
‘I just need you people to know,’ she said on Facebook this morning. ‘I appreciate the well wishes and love, but this is the work of God. I am a vessel! Glory to the most high! I’m glad I’m alive and safe. And that there were no casualties that I have witnessed first hand.’
Evans was held for 24 hours, prior to being released.
