The man who allegedly punched NYPD Chief Terence Monahan and two other officers has been released without bail. He reportedly punched the officers during protests on Wednesday on the Brooklyn Bridge.

25-year-old Quran Campbell has been accused of “socking the highest-ranking uniformed cop several times in the face as Monahan tried to arrest him after Campbell had allegedly punched another NYPD officer and lieutenant near the Manhattan approach to the bridge,” Fox News reported.

The court arraigned him on assault charges in Manhattan criminal court and then granted him supervised release.

On Thursday, the court arraigned another Bronx man, 25-year-old Banks Shaborn. This happened after he allegedly clocked the same lieutenant, Richard Mack of the department’s Strategic Response Group, multiple times in the face.

Fox News reported that the suspects allegedly broke both of Mack’s orbital bones.

According to Monahan, he suffered some bruises and jammed fingers, but he was fine. “I have some bruises on my body, my hands, fingers got jammed up, nothing broken,” Monahan said.

Shaborn was held on $10,000 bail.

The Scuffle

The scuffle broke out on Wednesday morning when social justice protesters in Manhattan disrupted a pro-NYPD march.

“They are part of this anarchist group that has been infiltrating this Black Lives movement since the beginning,” Monahan said, describing Campbell and Shaborn on “Good Day New York.”

“This is what we dealt with since the first protest after George Floyd. It is a legitimate movement, but it is being hijacked by these anarchists, and they are the ones that have been attacking our police officers [and] are out hiding behind the many, many peaceful protesters that are out there,” he added.

According to The New York Post, Campbell “was charged with attacking three separate officers,” and Shaborn was “busted for allegedly assaulting a lieutenant and criminal possession of a weapon.”
