ORLANDO, Fla. - A man who protested outside Pulse nightclub Monday following a ceremony marking the anniversary of the attack was arrested by Orlando police.

Local officials and the community had just finished a remembrance ceremony at the venue, which honored the victims and first responders.

Daniel Maguire was charged with breach of peace and resisting an officer without violence.

An Orlando police officer reported that the 36-year-old Maguire of Ruskin, Florida, ignored his request to move away from the club for his own safety. Maguire and another protester were wearing shirts with anti-gay slogans.

Video shows Maguire asking an officer, "What law am I breaking?" An officer holds out his hand to stop Maguire. The two push one another briefly, and Maguire falls.

Omar Mateen, who opened fire at the club, was killed by police on June 12, 2016.
