A woman at the football game in New Orleans was denied the right to speak in the national anthem by police.
A black woman named Jamilah Nasheed was detained by the New Orleans Police Department after she began speaking to supporters outside the stadium on Sunday.
The women were being escorted from the stadium by police and a large crowd gathered to protest the national flag being lowered to half-staff during the anthem.
Police told Nasheed she could not be escorted out of the stadium until she had been cleared by a supervisor and she made her way to the back of the stands.
The crowd then began chanting, “USA!
USA!” and the woman, who is black, began speaking loudly, shouting, “I love you.”
She then told the crowd, “All you have to do is take my hand and go.”
The police officer who arrested her told reporters that Nasheed’s arrest was a “police issue.”
The incident came just a day after another woman was arrested at a Patriots game.
The woman, identified by police as Lila Johnson, was protesting during the national anthems.
A video of the arrest shows Johnson’s supporters chanting “USA!” and holding up a sign that said, “Free Lila!”
The National Football League said it has suspended Johnson indefinitely for her actions.
