Texas sheriff threatens to press charges against a woman who had a ‘F--k Trump and f--k you for voting for him’ sticker on her car.
The woman’s husband, Mike Fonseca informed the news that his wife Karen was arrested on Thursday and was released that night only after Mike posted her bond. The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office announced that they had received a tip, after which the arrest was made.
Prior to that, Fonseca was in the center of the news when the local sheriff Troy Nehls threatened to arrest the woman because of the sticker she was displaying on her car. Troy Nehls had posted on Facebook that they “have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you. Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it.”
According to the official records, the woman was arrested for fraud dating back to last August. Fonseca, however, is convinced the sticker was the main reason.
The Facebook post was not welcomed on social media since many users considered the sticker a form of demonstration of the free speech. The post was soon removed. The removal was explained by the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, “the objective of the post was to find the owner/driver of the truck and have a conversation with them in order to prevent a potential altercation between the truck driver and those offended by the message. Since the owner of the truck has been identified, the Sheriff took down the post.”
Karen Fonseca told the news that she had the sticker for a year and is sure those in power were taking advantage of the system. Regardless of that, she has no regrets.
