This man was disrupting the first rally by loudly preaching the bible, and proclaiming that everyone was lying, including the speakers. Many left him alone, though a few tried to talk him down; but he remained angry.

Eventually the police came in to talk to him, creating more of a disturbance from the heated discussions. He was issued a citation for disorderly conduct at this juncture.

He stepped up on the ledge to preach some more, at which point officers were heard to say, "This looks like disorderly conduct to me, should we arrest him?" and "Yes, I'll arrest him for disorderly conduct."

He was then taken down and put in handcuffs. One of the rabbis then asked one of the officers to release him after getting him to the station, but it is unknown if that is what happened.

The arrest caused a standoff between the police and the marchers at the start of the march for a few minutes, but this ended when the man was taken away from the scene.
