Prosecutors: 81-Year-Old Attacked for Wearing MAGA Hat

(CBS New York)

By    |   Tuesday, 26 February 2019 09:41 PM

An 81-year-old New Jersey man was assaulted during an attack stemming from a dispute over his "Make America Great Again" hat, reports CBS New York.

The victim had minor injuries but refused medical treatment, the news outlet reported, citing local prosecutors.

The man was shopping at a supermarket when the scuffle took place. No arrests were made, and county authorities are working with local police on the investigation.

Earlier Tuesday, ABC 13 reported a woman who was charged with confronting a man wearing a MAGA hat in a Massachusetts restaurant now faces deportation.

"Deportation officers with ICE's Fugitive Operations Team arrested Rosiane Santos, an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil, today near Falmouth, Massachusetts," ICE spokesman John Mohan said.

Bryton Turner told media he was trying to eat a nice meal when Santos grabbed his hat.

"It's just a hat at the end of the day," Turner told WBZ after the incident. "I don't really understand why people can't just express themselves anymore. Everybody has to get mad."
