The far-left woman who was arrested after spitting in the face of a cop on Wednesday is a former intern for Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler.

Devina Singh, 24, was identified as the woman seen on video yelling “Fuck you, fascist” at a NYPD officer before she spat in his face.

The 24-year-old New York University graduate was yanked to the ground and arrested on charges of harassment, obstruction and violation of local law.

Dailycaller.com reports: Singh is reportedly a public health graduate of NYU and was an intern for Nadler for approximately 5 months between 2018 and 2019, according to the Post’s review of her Facebook.

The 24-year-old claimed she spat on the officer because “[the NYPD] hit us with their bikes repeatedly,” she told the Post.

Singh was arrested at two separate demonstrations in September and October before her Wednesday apprehension, according to the New York-based outlet. The NYU graduate reportedly boasted about her September booking on social media, calling an NYPD deputy inspector “Little Dick Nik,” the Post reported. 

A total of around 60 people were arrested during the Wednesday demonstration, according to the Post. Another woman was apprehended by law enforcement after she purportedly punched a high-ranking officer in the face, the outlet reported.
