Conservative Speaker ARRESTED During Speech at UConn [VIDEO]

A reporter for Gateway Pundit and previous White House press pass holder Lucian B. Wintrich has been “accosted” at a community college while delivering a speech entitled: “It’s Okay To Be White.”

The speech, which took place last night at the University of Connecticut ended with Wintrich being escorted out by the police after one of the professors (often misreported as a student) approached Wintrich at the podium and stole the papers on which he had printed his speech. Wintrich, 29, has since been released by authorities and is now biting back on social media against the left-wing news outlets that are mis-characterizing what happened.

One paper, the Chicago Tribune, says that windows were broken nearby and a smoke bomb was set off just outside of where Wintrich was giving his presentation. The reporter made his appearance while wearing a tux. Around 100 students were gathered outside of the lecture hall when he was brought out by police who nabbed him after he appears to have physically engaged with the professor who took his notes.

As posted by Lucian on Twitter, the woman who took his papers is a professor at the community college and he was charged with “breach of peace,” not assault. The speech, he pointed out, was about the disingenuity of the main stream media who choose to lie instead of report the plain truth.

A spokesperson for the college was able to confirm that Wintrich had been held by campus police and was indeed charged, saying that:

“UConn police are also investigating an incident in which someone broke a window in the lecture hall as the crowd was leaving and threw a smoke bomb inside. This led to speculation as to whether police had discharged tear gas, but that was not accurate. No tear gas was used or needed.”

One student was charged with both “breach of peace” and “criminal mischief” for the window that was broken as students left the event.

If you want to read Lucian’s speech, he’d made it available here:

In March of this year we wrote about an incident where a Fox News radio correspondent, Jon Decker, announced Wintrich’s arrival to the White House briefing room as being part of the Gateway Pundit site which, as Decker said according to Buzzfeed, hates “black, Jews, Hispanics.” Later on, Wintrich said that he had been “accosted,” “pushed in the back room” and that Decker had “grabbed [his] arm.” Furthermore, Wintrich went on to say that Decker called the Pundit website “white supremacist” and said that Wintrich himself was a “Nazi.”

At the time, Wintrich posted on Twitter that there were witnesses to the assaults and that he will indeed be pressing charges on Decker. So far, I am not aware that the charges went forward.

Lucian Wintrich first gained prominence with his “Twinks for Trump” photoshoot series which featured young men wearing MAGA hats in various states of being and undress. The photoshoot is often misrepresented as being organized by Milo Yiannopoulos who was simply one of the subjects, not the producer.

Here is the video posted showing the alleged assault:
