Anti-Trump activist who ran in front of Donald’s motorcade is released from jail saying he did it because of threats to lock up Hillary Clinton: Protestor is ex-owner of Stony Pony that launched Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen

  • Domenic Santana, 61, told Trump he ‘got his day’ and he would be ‘locked up’
  • He owned the Stone Pony in NJ, which launched several high-profile careers
  • The protestor ran in front of the motorcade in Miami ahead of the indictment

An anti-Trump protestor who ran in front of Donald’s motorcade dressed as a prisoner has been released from jail.

Domenic Santana, 61, was seen wearing a prison uniform and carrying a sign reading ‘lock him up’ when he tried to rush the SUV yesterday and was arrested.

The ex-owner of the Stone Pony, which was put on the map by Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi, claims he made the move because Trump called for Hillary Clinton to be jailed over her emails.

Dominic Santana was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon. It is unclear whether he was charged with any wrongdoing

Speaking to NBC6 he said: ‘Mr Trump you got your day, so did I. They locked you up you wanted Hillary to be locked up. What comes around goes around.’

Clinton’s emails were stored on a private server, against government protocol, and in March 2015 the company that maintained the server deleted the archive mailbox.

During his time in office, Trump said he would hire a special prosecutor on her over her email scandal ‘because there’s never been so many lies, so much deception.’

She previously apologized for the 33,000 emails she deleted off the server before she turned over her work product to the State Department.

Video posted online showed the motorcade traveling down a Miami street, where supporters and protesters were lined up on both sides.

Santana was immediately grabbed by agents traveling with the motorcade, who pushed him back to the sidewalk.

He was dressed in a black and white prison uniform and had been pictured earlier in the day standing with his sign waiting for the former president.

A second video showed Santana on the ground as spectators gathered around him with their phones out.

Miami police officers could be seen pushing the crowd back as others led the protester away in handcuffs.

Secret Service agents immediately sprang into action when Santana jumped in front of Trump’s vehicle

‘His actions had no impact on the security of the protective movement, and we thank Miami City Police for their continued partnership.’

Santana was also seen getting into an argument with a Trump supporter before his arrest, calling him the ‘biggest con in American history.’

His stunt was one of the highest-profile incidents on Tuesday for crowds that gathered at the Miami courthouse for his arraignment on federal charges in a case involving the handling of classified documents.

Protestors and supporters of the former president gathered at the courthouse hours before the 3 pm arraignment.

In the morning, cops had to shut off a block outside the Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr. United States Federal Courthouse for a report of a ‘suspicious package’ on the scene before Trump arrived.

A bomb squad was called in and officers pushed the crowd back to inspect the mystery object before the all-clear was given.

The altercation came as former President Donald Trump was leaving his arraignment in Miami, where he pleaded not guilty to federal charges

City officials had said they were prepared for a crowd of 5,000 to 50,000 people in the downtown area that houses the Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr. United States Federal Courthouse.

A combination of local, state and federal law enforcement were on hand with trucks of police in riot gear arriving on the scene Tuesday morning. Barriers and police tape were also put up to control the crowds and helicopters flew overhead.

The former president was also protected by his Secret Service detail.

Trump pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to 37 federal counts against him for his mishandling of classified documents.

He was arrested and fingerprinted, but was not handcuffed and no mugshot was taken before he headed into a federal courtroom.

After about 20 minutes of arguing by opposing lawyers, the court ruled Trump cannot talk to witnesses and his co-defendant, Walt Nauta, about the case.

The former president was released after just about an hour-long hearing, with a federal judge ruling that he was not a flight risk — and therefore a bond was not necessary.

He last night gave a speech hours after his indictment, where he said that ‘justice will be done’.

Trump said: They want to take away my freedom because I will never let them take away your freedom. It is very simple.

‘They want to silence me because I will never let them silence you. They want you silenced. And I am the only one that can save this nation because you know they are not coming after me. They are coming after you.

‘I just happen to be standing in their way and I will never be moving.’
