In July, we covered the story of a teenager in Texas, whose ‘Make America Great Again’ hat was ripped off his head by a man in a fast food restaurant. After stealing the hat, the man threw a large cup of soda in the teen’s face.

The teenager got the last laugh when his video of the incident went viral.

We cited this report from News 4 San Antonio:

VIDEO: Teen attacked at Whataburger for wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hat

Police are investigating after a teen says he was verbally attacked and assaulted at a Whataburger for wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

In the video, you can see a man throw a drink in 16-year-old Hunter Richard’s face before leaving the restaurant with his hat. Hunter said some of his hair was pulled during the assault.

“I support my President and if you don’t let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off. 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,” he said.

Hunter was with his friends at the Whataburger off Nacogdoches and Thousand Oaks Tuesday night when it happened. They say the attack was unprovoked.

Here’s the video. Strong language warning:

After the media picked up the story, the assailant, Kino Jimenez was arrested and then fired from his job at a local bar. Now he has been indicted.

Man accused of grabbing ‘MAGA’ cap, throwing drink in teen’s face indicted

A Bexar County grand jury has indicted a 30-year-old San Antonio man who was arrested in July after he was captured on video grabbing a “Make America Great Again” cap from a teenager who was dining at a San Antonio Whataburger.

Bexar County court records show Kino Jimenez was indicted Wednesday on a charge of theft of person, which is a state jail felony. He was located in Universal City in July by San Antonio police robbery task force detectives who took him into custody on an arrest warrant…

Jimenez, who is out on bond, has a trial date of Oct. 19 in the 187th state District Court, presided by Judge Joey Contreras. Court records indicate he is being represented by defense attorney Ronald B. Cosgrove. The prosecutor on the case is Jason Goss.

Mr. Jimenez is apparently no stranger to trouble:

Jimenez has a criminal record that includes misdemeanor offenses for marijuana possession and driving while intoxicated, according to court records.

The report goes on to state that Jimenez has no felony convictions and could face as little as probation or as much as two years in jail.
