A 64-year-old white lawyer has been arrested after being caught on film spitting on a 17-year-old taking part in a Black Lives Matter protest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

As per reports, the woman, Stephanie Rapkin, who also stands accused of shoving a 21-year-old college student writing in chalk on her sidewalk, resisted arrest.

Police sent to detain the 64-year-old on battery and disorderly conduct charges were met with violence when Rapkin reportedly kneed one officer in the groin.

The lawyer was caught on camera spitting at Eric Lucas, a 17-year-old student at Shorewood High School. Protesters had engaged in a shouting match with Rapkin after she parked her car in the middle of the street to block them.
