Man accused of stealing pro-Trump teen’s MAGA hat arrested

Twitter

A man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly stealing a teenager’s “Make America Great Again” hat and throwing a drink at him, according to Fox News.

The news network reported on Friday that San Antonio police arrested Kino Jimenez, 30. Jail records show he was detained on a warrant of theft of person. 

{mosads}Jimenez’s arrest stemmed from a viral video shared earlier this week that captured him harassing a teenager wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at the fast food restaurant in San Antonio. 

The video shows a man throwing a drink before walking off with a red hat that presumably belonged to one of the teenagers in the clip.

“You ain’t supporting s—, n—-,” Jimenez can be heard saying in the video. 

Hunter Richard told News 4 San Antonio that he was dining with his friends at a Whataburger restaurant when he had his hat stolen.

“I support my president, and if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” Richard said. “I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me.”

In response to the video, multiple people connected to President Trump have offered to give Richard a replacement for his hat that was stolen. Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, tweeted Thursday night that if “someone can get me this young man’s information I’ll get him a new #maga hat… SIGNED by #potus!!!.”
