Darren Martin,Former Obama Staff Accused Of Burglary.

Darren Martin, a Bronx native, recently moved back to New York after spending several years working on Capitol Hill and in the White House under the Obama Administration.

While moving into his Upper West Side apartment, he received a visit from police after someone called authorities and said a “burglary was in progress.”

Martin told Pix 11 “his skin color along with the gentrifying neighborhood along 106th Street was obvious factors that led to police being called.”

The encounter with police was captured on Martin’s live stream. He can be seen standing in the hallway surrounded by officers and says “Somebody called the cops on me in my own building. About how many are ya’ll? About six of ya’ll showed up, rolled up on me.”

“I didn’t really think anyone was going to call the cops on me because I mean – I was moving into the building.”
