Irishman arrested for ‘causing anxiety’ with swastika pride flag post

A video has shown the moment an Irishman was arrested at his home in Aldershot, England on Friday.

Darren Brady (51) who was born and bred in Dublin was detained after he reposted a photograph depicting a swastika made out of LGBTQ+ Pride flags.

In the video, he asks officers: “Why am I in cuffs?” to which one replies: “It didn’t have to come to this at all.”

Brady then responds: “Tell us why you escalated it to this level, because I don’t understand.”

To which the officer adds: “Someone has been caused anxiety based on your social media post. This is why you have been arrested.”
