Georgia Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson was arrested by Capitol police.

A video circulating social media shows Johnson in handcuffs being escorted by police.

Johnson, who is 66 years old, wrote online, “I was getting in #goodtrouble.”

Police confirmed with Fox News that they arrested 10 individuals for “unlawfully demonstrating outside of the Hart Senate Office Building.”

All individuals were charged with “Crowding, Obstructing, or Incommoding.”

Johnson was reportedly protesting Senate “inaction” on voting legislation and filibuster reform, also called the “Black Votes Matter” protest.

Watch the clip:

“In the spirit of my dear friend and mentor – the late Congressman John Lewis – I was getting in #goodtrouble,” Johnson said.

More from Fox News:

The 66-year-old Georgia congressman was surrounded by other protestors detained by Capitol police who chanted, “Whose street? Our street. Whose house? Our house.”

Johnson gave a speech at the voting rights rally in front of the Supreme Court, where he was joined by other members of the Congressional Black Caucus including Democratic Reps. Jamaal Bowman of New York, Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri, Troy Carter of Louisiana, Jackson Lee of Texas, and Al Green of Texas.

The group of protestors then marched over to the Senate office building to protest in front of the entrance while chanting, “This is what democracy looks like”…

Johnson’s office said the congressman was arrested with a “group of Black male voting rights activists protesting against Senate inaction on voting rights legislation and filibuster reform.


TRENDING 👇 Biden Admits That He Wants to Ban Handguns

Yes, Joe Biden admitted the unthinkable.

During the CNN town hall event, Biden said he is “continuing to push” for a ban on weapons that can fire multiple rounds, including handguns.“I’m the only guy that ever got — passed legislation when I was a senator to make sure we eliminated assault weapons,” Biden said.

He continued, “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous.” For those unfamiliar, a “9mm pistol” is a handgun that Biden clearly states he would “eliminate” as a weapon if it has “the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon.”

Watch for yourself:

It’s always hilarious to hear liberals talk about guns until you realize that they’re being dead serious.
