Florida Man Charged With Battery for Spitting on Trump Supporter Wearing MAGA Hat

Matthias Ajple has been charged with battery for spitting on a Trump supporter and slapping his hat down in an unprovoked attack at a restaurant.

Ajple showed no remose and called it “exciting” to be going to jail. He has since been released on $500 bail.

Per WIFR, according to an arrest report reviewed by the Miami Herald,

Deputies said Florida resident Matthias Ajple, 43, was at a bar last Friday when he saw another man wearing a Make America Great Again.

Ajple wasn’t pleased, so he allegedly walked up to the man and said, “You should go back to Russia you f*****g communist.”

Had the encounter ended there, there likely wouldn’t have been reason for an arrest. But, things escalated.

The man told investigators that Ajple slapped the brim of his cap and spat on him before walking out.

According to an arrest report reviewed by the Miami Herald, he told deputies he didn’t mind that he was going to jail. He actually found it exciting.

TCPalm reports the incident took place at 8:10 p.m. Friday.

Youngblood told a deputy he was sitting with two friends at the restaurant when Ajple walked over and said “You should go back to Russia you  … communist,” the report said.

After slapping the hat and spitting on Youngblood, Ajple got in a car and drove away from the restaurant, according to the report.

Youngblood was able to write down the car’s license plate number and deputies tracked down Ajple at his home.

A deputy spoke with Ajple’s wife at the address, who said she told her husband to go up to Youngblood and tell him to “go back to Russia,” the report said. She told deputies she did not witness the altercation.

The arresting deputy then spoke with Ajple, according to the report.

“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,” according to the report.
