The First US President charged with crime.

Former US President Donald Tump has become the first former president in history to be arrested and charged for breaking the law.

He appeared in court in New York on Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to 34 charges of business fraud.

Mr Trump is accused of making false records to hide the fact he paid money to a woman that it's claimed he had a relationship with.

The ex-US president returned to Florida immediately after, where he told supporters the case was "an insult to our country".

As Donald Trump becomes the first former US president to face criminal charges, BBC Reel explores the history of the first sitting US president to be arrested, Ulysses S. Grant.

General Grant, the 18th President of the United States, was known for his love of fast horses – and riding them around the streets of Washington DC, at speed.

And in 1872, that was exactly how he became the only sitting president in US history to be arrested while in office.
