A former talent agent to Kevin Spacey has been arrested and charged with assaulting a police officer after she inadvertently drove into the middle of a Trump rally and subsequently became entangled with police. 

It all started innocently enough as Hollywood executive Joanne Horowitz was returning a pair of shoes to a shop in Beverly Hills.

But as she made her way home through the posh Los Angeles suburb she got caught up in a Trump rally that was taking place.

As she attempted to avoid becoming further entangled with the mob Horowitz, 68, ended up driving the wrong way down Beverly Drive. 

Police who were already on scene gave chase and pulled her over.

Video footage of the incident which was posted to YouTube saw her then attempting to make a getaway from the protesters, but she didn’t get far until police pulled her over once again just around the corner from the first traffic stop.  

After speaking with a police officer, the jeering crowd approached her car and saw Horowitz once again trying to speed off, this time appearing to turning her car wheels towards the officer who was speaking to her. He was forced to jump out of the way to avoid being run over.

‘As the officer was contacting the driver a second time, she remained uncooperative, turned her steering wheel toward the officer and fled in her vehicle, causing the officer to have to jump out of the way to avoid being struck,’ the Beverly Hills police department told Page Six.

Once again, officers gave chase and it was the end of the road for Horowitz.

She was dragged from her white SUV and placed in handcuffs as protesters cheered: ‘Lock her up! Lock her up!’

Horowitz, who has managed Kevin Spacey and Scott Eastwood, mouthed a few curse words at the protesters as she was placed into the back of a patrol car.    

‘We would like to be clear in that we unequivocally maintain her innocence. At the time of the incident, Ms. Horowitz was under extreme duress as she was being accosted by a maskless sheriff and surrounded by angry protesters who were attacking her vehicle screaming ‘lock her up’ as well as anti-Semitic remarks,’ said her attorney Shane Bernard to the New York Post.

Horowitz was released on a $75,000 bond and is due in court next month. She has been charged with evading a police officer and resisting or obstructing a public officer.

Horowitz has worked in showbiz for decades and was at one point known as the ‘first-ever celebrity wrangler’ by The Hollywood Reporter.

In the 2000s, she became a VP of PR at United Artists Pictures, working alongside  Alec Baldwin, Christopher Reeve and Robert Downey Jr.
