A woman was arrested on Wednesday for disrupting Donald Trump’s civil fraud trial after she approached the former US president in court saying she wanted to “assist him,” a court spokesman said.

The woman, a court employee, was “safely escorted” out of the Manhattan courtroom by officers and has been charged with contempt of court and immediately placed on administration leave pending an investigation, spokesman Lucian Chalfen said.

The woman, who was not identified, “disrupted the proceedings by standing up and walking towards the front of the courtroom and yelling out to Mr Trump indicating she wanted to assist him,” Mr Chalfen said in a statement.

She was “stopped by court officers before she got near Mr Trump or any of the attorneys or other litigants,” the spokesman said, adding that “none of the parties were ever in any danger.”
