Video of IFBB Pro Bodybuilder Nathan De Asha being arrested surfaces.
IFBB Pro Bodybuilder, Nathan De Asha recently posted a video to his Instagram and on his Prophecy Performance Centre Instagram page where he is being arrested in Liverpool, UK. This past year saw massive protests across the world in solidarity with those against police brutality. The movement was one that everyone from all different walks of life were able to resonate with and with good reason. Far too often Black men the world over have been treated violently by law enforcement. The death of George Floyd made that issue all the more clear.
But it seems that the more things change the more they stay the same. Nathan De Asha was unfortunately faced with that very issue.

This is a very alarming video to say the least. While we may not have full context, it appears that Nathan De Asha didn’t pose an immediate threat to the officers on the scene. De Asha was quickly surrounded by over 9 officers, including one with a K9 dog. One of the officers is seen throwing a knee to De Asha and who is later dragged to the ground. De Asha’s caption on the video read: “What the news doesn’t show you. The truth.”
De Asha has faced several encounters with law enforcement in the past. After winning the 2018 New York Pro Nathan de Asha pleaded guilty to selling steroids in 2019.
