A Michigan man who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge for throwing water balloons into a crowd of Trump supporters at the president’s recent rally in Grand Rapids says he’d likely do it again.

“I probably would do it again,” Robert Dale Truax Jr. told a local ABC station on Thursday, shortly after his appearance in Grand Rapids District Court. He added that next time he'll try to “get three water balloons out.”


According to the local publication, Truax tossed two balloons into the crowd of Trump supporters as they gathered outside of an arena last week where the president delivered remarks to supporters inside. 

Although no injuries were reported, Grand Rapids Police Sgt. Cathy Williams told the station that Truax’s actions “certainly can get someone injured.”

“And we’re not going to allow that to happen,” she said.

Truax shared a six-minute video of the incident to his YouTube page. 

“Just got done buying some balloons at Dollar Tree because we’re gonna throw some water balloons at some Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpChelsea Clinton announces birth of third child Ukrainian officials and Giuliani are sharing back-channel campaign information: report Trump attacks 'the Squad' as 'racist group of troublemakers' MORE supporters,’’ Truax said in the clip. “Like you can’t be coming to my block supporting some Donald Trump shit. So you about to get hit.’’ 

Truax was reportedly charged with creating a disturbance for the incident. He faces up to 90 days in jail for the charge and a $500 fine. 

“I was trying to stand up for the people who are just against the president,’’ Truax told the station Thursday. 

“In a way his supporters are just like him. I did what I had to do,” he added.
