Far-right supporters holding aloft American flags attempted to perform a “citizen’s arrest” of London mayor and Trump critic Sadiq Khan on Saturday.

Khan was delivering a speech at the left-wing Fabian Society in the United Kingdom's capital city when protesters from a group called the White Pendragons, shouting pro-Trump and pro-Brexit slogans, disrupted his talk, according to multiple reports.

Khan on Friday had said that President Donald Trump had “got the message” that he was “not welcome in London” after the president canceled a planned state visit.

In a video posted on Twitter, one protester says "Ladies and gentlemen, we're here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen's arrest."

As security appeared to usher out the protesters, they were jeered and heckled by the crowd who had come to see Khan’s speech.

But one protester refused to leave.

"We stand under common law jurisdiction,” he said, as quoted by Sky News.

"If you touch us, you'll be done for common assault. Please stand back, do not touch us.

"We're not leaving, we've paid for a ticket."

Khan reportedly sat down and flicked through a newspaper as he waited for the commotion to die down and the protesters to be escorted out.

After they had been led out, Khan aimed another jab at President Trump.

“It is a pleasure to be here even though we were distracted by the actions of what some would call very stable geniuses,” he said, referring to last week's Trump tweet in which he referred to himself as a "very stable genius."

A longstanding Trump critic, Khan was attacked by the president for urging calm after the London Bridge terror attack last June, in which eight people were killed.

“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!" the president tweeted.

After leading a vigil for the victims of the attack, Khan told the BBC “We aren’t going to allow anybody, whether it’s Donald Trump or anybody else, to divide our community.”

I saw this headline somewhere in my feed somewhere and it seemed too ridiculous to not post. I had to watch the video and look up other videos to make sure it wasn't made up. Like what would you arrest him for in the first place?

Khan took the microphone and managed to say, "Thank you," before a man in a trench coat approached the table and interrupted his speech.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we are here today to make a peaceful, nonviolent citizen's arrest of those named," the man said. He named Khan and Parliament member Kate Green, who was chairing the event, and two other speakers.

Khan took a drink of water, sat down and looked at the men. He said nothing.

"Could I ask security to lead the gentlemen out, please?" said Green.

A guard walked over to Russell, who seemed to have been expecting a challenge.

"We are under common law jurisdiction!" Russell cried. "If you touch us, you will be done for common assault. We're not leaving."

But the guard persisted, and soon Russell was arguing: "I paid for a ticket! Do not touch me," he said. "We have paid for a ticket. . . . OK, so we want the money back for the ticket then."

Pathetic

Sadiq Khan has said he believes the threat of terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city”

Wow what strong leadership. What a P.O.S.

Importing islamists is the cause, not having a lot of people in one area.

Attacks like that are always going to happen in big cities. Regardless of the ideology of the perpetrators That's the world we live in.

Similiar attacks like that will happen here if we don't crack down on radical Islamic and radical members of the alt right/ radical left.
