The Texas teen who had his “Make America Great Again” hat stolen inside a Whataburger restaurant in San Antonio last week was gifted a new cap signed by President Trump, a report said Wednesday. FOX29 San Antonio reporter Joe Galli tweeted a photo of the presidentially signed hat sent to 16-year-old Hunter Richard, who made national news after a video of the incident went viral. “You ain’t supporting s—, n—-!” a man identified as Kino Jimenez, 30, is heard saying on camera after tossing a large drink in the direction of the person 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. Richard had his original cap returned by police after they arrested Jimenez in Universal City on Friday, WAOI-TV reported.
This is the follow up to a story we’ve been covering here.. We’re very glad to see it ended on a good note. The loser/punk who threw a drink in the face of Hunter and took his MAGA hat, was caught by police, arrested and booked. Yeah, he bonded out. But, he’ll still have to face a judge at some point. We’ll, of course, keep an eye on that part of the story. And, the original hat was returned to the kid, and as a bonus, he got another MAGA hat signed by Trump himself! Excellent! 🙂
The man accused of hurling a drink in the face of a Texas teen inside a Whataburger restaurant and then stealing the 16-year-old’s “Make America Great Again” hat was arrested Thursday, officials said. San Antonio Police identified the suspect late Thursday as 30-year-old Kino Jimenez. “Kino Jimenez was located in Universal City, Texas,” police said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “Universal City police officers took Mr. Jimenez into custody without incident.” Jail records Friday morning showed Jimenez was detained on a warrant for theft of person. A jail spokesperson later told Fox News that Jimenez’s bond was set at $5,000 and he was booked and released on bond the same day. The incident, which was captured on a video that soon went viral, reportedly happened Tuesday at one of the burger chain’s restaurants in San Antonio. “You ain’t supporting s— n—-!” Jimenez is heard saying on camera after tossing a large drink in the direction of the person 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. The events preceding the video were not clear. Hunter Richard, the 16-year-old teen who says he was wearing the hat, told WOAI some of his hair was ripped off as Jimenez removed it from his head. “I support my President and, if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” he said. “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.” There was no word Friday if the original hat has been recovered, but there have been offers for Richard to receive a replacement cap signed by Trump himself. “If someone can get me this young man’s information I’ll get him a new #maga hat… SIGNED by #potus!!!,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday night. A spokesperson for Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., also told Fox News hours earlier the Congressman was looking to see what he could do to secure the teen a signed hat. “Don’t let a few left bullies stop you from showing your #MAGA!” Brad Parscale, the president’s 2020 campaign manager, tweeted in reaction to the video.
This is a follow up to the article we posted (scroll down about 7 articles) earlier in the week when we heard of this shocking story. As result of what this maggot did to this poor kid, he lost his part-time job at a local San Antonio bar called Rumble, and got arrested and charged with assault. One word…KARMA!! And, it pretty clear he immediately changed his appearance after that video of him stealing the MAGA hat and throwing the drink in the kid’s face. In the video he has glasses on and a full facial hair. In his booking photo there are no glasses and he’s clean shaven; looks VERY different. Kudos to the police for tracking this piece of garbage down. And, seems like the victim of this unprovoked assault will get a new hat signed by Trump! Let this be a lesson to other thug wannabes. Excellent!! 🙂
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. “I didn’t think it was going to generate the amount like what people are doing, I was looking at the comments by some people and “they are like this is uncalled for” and other people are like mixed opinions but I didn’t think it would blow up to what it is now,” he said. A police report has been filed. Police said a suspect is in custody, but the victim, Hunter, will need to meet with them to positively identify the person.
And hopefully Hunter will do that soon. This guy needs to be properly charged for assault, and to spend some time in jail. As an update, this piece of garbage who did this was a part-time employee of a bar called Rumble in San Antonio. WAS is the active word in that sentence. He has since been fired after this video went viral. For more on this story, and to see the video of this unprovoked assault, click on the text above.
