Diego Ibanez, the 26-year-old activist who splattered Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and his security detail on Monday, will be able to leave jail if he can come up with a $30,000 bond or $20,000 in cash for bail.
C.S. Muncy Diego Ibanez, center, was arrested while protesting in Times Square on November 24.
At his arraignment shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday, Assistant District Attorney Andrew Mercer said that Ibanez threw the "unknown red liquid" at Bratton and his crew "not once but twice."
"Bratton was reviewing the situation and making sure everything was in control and safe," said Mercer. He added that two police officers got irritated eyes from being "struck by this liquid and had to go to the hospital."
"It did, in fact, injure two people," said Mercer. "And it could have injured more."More »
