Scientology protester claims she was 'grabbed and dragged out of the crowd' at event

A protester at the Scientology National Affairs Office opening on Saturday says she was “grabbed and dragged out of the crowd” at the event.

A video taken by Andrea Garner, an outspoken critic of Scientology, shows a man holding his flag in front of her camera. She can be heard in the video telling him to get his hands off her.

“I was asked to move out of their camera frame, which was fine, but while I was moving he grabbed my arm and dragged me out of the crowd,” Garner told independent.ie.

“I believe he was a member of staff told to hold his flag in front of my camera to block me from filming, and he eventually became frustrated and grabbed me,” she continued.

Garner was not holding a sign or making any noise, but she said that she is known as a critic of scientology.

Ms Garner, who is from the UK, said she has not reported the incident to gardaí.

In legal terminology, assault is an action causing apprehension. Battery is the physical touching. If she was grabbed without warning she was battered but not assaulted.

Non-legal usage is different!
