They assure that it was an "illegal arrest for not wearing a mask", although the man is accused of assaulting the police.
"Illegal arrest for not wearing a mask in Lanzarote." That is the striking subtitle that accompanies the video that the "deniers" are broadcasting to question what happened last Saturday, when a man was arrested by the Arrecife Local Police when he was participating in a protest .
In reality, the images show how the man, a foreign national, tries to flee from the agents. Later, he starts a struggle with one of them and when they try to hold him back, he pushes one of the policemen until he knocks him to the ground.
Finally, the man was arrested, but not for not wearing a mask, but rather accused of assaulting the police, who claim that he had previously rebuked them.
