The standoff lasted for several hours as Ingram used Zoom and Instagram to speak with lawyers and communicate with those outside his home, seeking to help him out of his situation with law enforcement.

At one point, Ingram accused law enforcement of intercepting his phone calls, although the claim is unverified.

"This is exactly what everyone in New York City should be worried about," Mozaffari added.

Ingram is a founder of Warriors in the Garden, a group that has led rallies and events around the city since its formation in June.

"This was an attempt to silence our movement. This militarized police response endangers the safety of residents in Hell's Kitchen and across NYC," Ingram said in a statement on Friday evening.
