A gay conservative White House correspondent has been arrested after an altercation on campus, at the University of Connecticut.

Lucian Wintrich is a correspondent for far-right website Gateway Pundit but is also known for the ‘Twinks 4 Trump’ photo exhibit.

His arrest by UConn police follows an altercation at the ‘It’s OK to Be White’ lecture he gave this week.

Members of the audience were heckling the speech with calls of ‘Go home nazi’ and ‘Black lives matter.’

Then, Wintrich went into the crowd grabbing and pulling a woman who took his speech:

‘Video of the altercation shows that the guest appeared to remove paperwork from the lectern where Mr. Wintrich was speaking and that he followed the woman into the audience, where the altercation occurred,’ a UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz told the Hartford Courant.

Moreover, Reitz says the Twinks 4 Trump speaker was held by the UConn police facing charges of ‘breach of peace.’

He was later released on a $1,000 (£750, €850) bail.

Protests continued after he was arrested

He was held at the UConn campus for nearly an hour as students continued protesting. But, he was eventually escorted out the back door and moved to the police station.

However, when the students caught wind of this, they ran after the police car:

Reflecting on the events on Twitter, Wintrich says:

‘It’s really unfortunate that some of the kids at UConn felt the need to be violent and disruptive during a speech that focused on how the leftist media is turning Americans against each other. Tonight proved my point.

‘Adding irony to the entire ordeal, I was arrested for “Second Degree Breach of Peace.” Apparently, “Peace” is anything far left students don’t agree with. SAD!

‘Plenty of great young conservatives in the audience – disappointed that the left wouldn’t let this happen.’

Wintrich also made light of the ordeal posting his pleasure at the mug shot taken during the arrest:
