A lawyer from New York who threatened to call immigration officers on customers and employees speaking Spanish at a Manhattan restaurant was seen trying to avoid media cameras.

Aaron Schlossberg, 42, was caught running from cameras outside of his home, the New York Post reported on Thursday.

Schlossberg was carrying a briefcase and using his umbrella to cover his face.

“Please send help,” Schlossberg was heard saying into his cellphone. “They’re claiming things that aren’t true … grabbing me, not letting me walk."

“They won’t let me move. They’re surrounding me,” Schlossberg said on the call before hopping into a yellow cab on West 60th Street near Tenth Avenue.
