The man was arrested around 11:00 a.m. while crashing the annual event in Columbus Circle and dressed in the white KKK get-up as some 150 people honored the pre-parade tradition, according to cops. The man’s name wasn’t released, but his antics were captured on video and posted on Twitter by another attendee.
Two other protesters, draped in fake chains, were also escorted away by cops.
