Florida man is at it again, and this time it’s for spitting on a dude in a MAGA hat. And he called him a communist. Which is weird. From the Hill:
A Florida man was sentenced to 90 days in jail after spitting on a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at a restaurant in southern Florida.
According to Treasure Coast Newspapers, an Indian River County judge accepted a no-contest plea Thursday and determined 43-year-old Matthias Ajple was guilty of battery on 67-year-old Robert Youngblood.
Surveillance footage at a restaurant in Vero Beach, Fla., shows Ajple placing what appears to be a paper towel on the head of Youngblood, who was wearing a MAGA hat.
You can see what he does here:
Now, that probably wouldn’t have gotten him in trouble, but he didn’t stop, it looks like he came back and spit on the guy:
According to court documents obtained by Treasure Coast Newspapers, Ajple told Youngblood, “You should go back to Russia you … communist,” before slapping his hat off and spitting on him.
Ajple drove away, but Youngblood wrote down his license plate and turned it in to authorities.
Really brave. If you’re gonna do that, at least be willing to stand there and take the beating.
The moron told police he did it to protect them:
“I was just trying to protect you guys because I support law enforcement. Trump supporters are communist and racist,” Ajple told the deputy. “I don’t even care that I’m going to jail; this is actually exciting.”
“Plus, I have more time on this earth than he does anyway; he probably feels so good about himself,” Ajple said, according to the report.
Sad. And pathetic. He also had to pay the guy $155 in restitution and was given 72 hours of supervised probation.
That’s about it for Saturday, I’mma go watch the Titans possibly beat the Ravens?!? They’re up by 14 right now. That Niners game was not a shocker. Looks like a Superbowl team right now. I hope you’re all having a great weekend. Have an open thread. Here’s some comment fodder:
So my 80 something year old uncle knocked out his granddaughter’s boyfriend for being disrespectful. An ambulance had to be called and this may have made my week.— Jennifer (@jenniferlee_75) January 11, 2020
