Nigel Lovell, 27, of Scarborough Road, Leytonstone, was arrested under police powers to stop and search for failing to remove a white scarf from his face.
Lovell, who was dressed as General Custer, denied he had anything to do with the May Day protests that brought the West End to a standstill on Tuesday when police cordoned off thoroughfares to keep protesting groups separate.
‘I was only on my way to a fancy dress party. I was going to Hamley’s to buy a toy gun. I was only asking the officer for time – not immediately refusing. It was pathetic they arrested me,’ Lovell told reporters on leaving court.
He was bailed to reappear in June and was the first of 13 people to appear before court following the protests on Tuesday.
