A man connected to a fringe far-right group camping in downtown Ottawa attempted a citizen's arrest on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau twice last week and for his troubles, was arrested instead.

Both of the citizen-arrest attempts were recorded and posted on Facebook where they were viewed thousands of times. During the first effort on July 23, a man, who identifies himself to police as Brian Kidder, marches to the gates of Rideau Hall, Trudeau's current residence in Ottawa, with a small entourage.

"I'm here to make a citizen's arrest of Justin Trudeau. The charge is obstruction of justice," Kidder tells one of the RCMP officers standing outside of the gates. "I'm not going to hurt him; I'm just going to (Kidder does a reaching forward movement) and say, 'You're under arrest.'"
