A follow up on a story that went viral when a Texas teenager was the victim of Trump Derangement Syndrome brings us the indictment of the man caught on surveillance video stealing his Make America Great Again hat and tossing a soda at the young man.
A grand jury has indicted a Texas man who was arrested in July for allegedly stealing a teen’s “Make America Great Again” hat before throwing a drink in his face at a Whataburger restaurant — an incident that went viral and caught the attention of the Trump family.
Kino Jimenez, 30, was charged with theft of person. He could serve time in state jail if convicted, Houston’s KHOU-TV reported.
Jimenez was accused of stealing 16-year-old Hunter Richard’s cap on July 3. The teen captured a video of Jimenez criticizing him for supporting President Trump as he sat in the San Antonio restaurant with friends.
“You ain’t supporting s—, n—-!” a man identified as Jimenez is heard saying on camera after tossing a large drink in the direction of the teen filming the video. He then walks away with the hat while muttering “b—- a– motherf——” as one of the other teens sitting at the table appears stunned.
Authorities identified Jimenez from the video and arrested him at his home July 6 on a warrant for theft of person. He was booked and released later that day on $5,000 bond.
Surveillance cameras. Gotta love ’em. Obviously, this guy does not watch cop shows.
At any rate, when the incident happened, Hunter Richard’s story got this response from Donald Trump Jr.

The hat arrived in Texas signed by the president as promised.
With all luck incidents like this one will not become the norm as President Trump scores more victories on trade, tax reform, foreign policy and more. If nothing else, this incident demonstrates that TDS is real, and is a danger to people who openly support the president on the streets.
