Does this video show Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan district attorney, arrested? No, that's not true: Video used in a claim is from The Associated Press (AP) and in reality the AP caption is, "Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg seen leaving office" on the news service's YouTube channel. No media outlets have reported on Bragg being arrested, including AP.
The claim appeared on Twitter (archived here) where it was published on March 31, 2023. The tweet read:
PROSECUTOR INVESTIGATING DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN ARRESTED Alvin Bragg leaves his post in Manhattan. Watch until end... transient sirens!🇺🇸🇧🇷
This is what the post looked like on Twitter at the time of writing:

The tweet also features a slightly different Portuguese caption. Google Translate translates the Portuguese to English as, "PROSECUTOR INVESTIGATING DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN ARRESTED Alvin Bragg leaves his post in Manhattan don't look happy Watch... sirens on!"
In the upper right-hand corner of the video is the logo for The Associated Press. Lead Stories found the video on AP's YouTube channel. AP titled the exact same video, "Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg seen leaving office."
The video shows Bragg, who brought charges again former President Donald Trump, exiting an office building and getting into an official-looking black vehicle. The natural sound captured on the AP video has been replaced in the claim version by dramatic music.
The tweet does not cite anything to substantiate its claim of an arrest.
Searching for the phrase, "Alvin Bragg arrested" in Google News results in zero relevant articles.
