Former US President, Donald Trump has been arrested after surrendering himself to the police on arriving at the Manhattan district attorney’s office.

He is now in police custody ahead of his arraignment in court.

Trump is expected to be fingerprinted as part of the arrest, though it’s still unclear whether his mugshot will be taken, according to CNN.

He will next be brought to a courtroom, where he will be arraigned — an appearance that is expected to be quick and routine but represents a surreal and historic moment in US history.

Trump is not expected to be handcuffed following his arrest, as he will remain under constant law enforcement protection.

Trump was indicted on criminal charges in New York for his role in organising hush money payments made to an adult film star during his 2016 campaign.

The history-making indictment by the Manhattan grand jury on Thursday marks the first time a president has been charged in a criminal matter.
