Protester in Midtown standoff with NYPD turns himself in

The protester who live-streamed a six-hour standoff with police attempting to arrest him for allegedly yelling through a bullhorn into a cop’s ear has turned himself in, The Post has learned.

Derrick Ingram surrendered Saturday morning at the Midtown North precinct, according to police sources.

Ingram on Friday staved off police who showed up clad in tactical gear to cuff him for allegedly damaging their colleague’s hearing at a recent demonstration, according to police.

A crowd of more than 100 protested the standoff — which Ingram was broadcasting on social media from his West 45th Street apartment — before Police Commissioner Dermot Shea ordered them to retreat around 1 p.m.
