VIDEO: Democrat Staffer Sentenced to Prison for Brutal Attack on Man in MAGA Hat

Tucson Democrat Daniel Zaroes Brito, the violent assailant who last year brutally attacked fellow city resident Jonathan Sparks for wearing a MAGA hat, has been sentenced to 12 days in jail.

The violent attack led to victim Jonathan Sparks spending 20 hours in the hospital, where he had to undergo surgery.


The AZ republican party was not happy about the short sentence, tweeting:

Fmr staffer Daniel Zaroes Brito, a Democrat, has been sentenced to *12 DAYS* in jail for his violent assault on Tucson supporter Jonathan Sparks—who was attacked for wearing a hat. Grijalva has not yet condemned the attack.

Townhall reports, last year, Daniel Zaroes Brito, former Legislative Assistant to U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), attacked a man who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and waving a sign that read, “Vote Jobs, Not Mobs–Vote Republican.” The victim, Tucson resident Jonathan Sparks, suffered serious injuries in the assault.

Brito has now been sentenced to 12 days in the Pima County jail and three years probation.

“The assailant had jumped on to my ankle from behind,” Sparks explained last November. “So I, knowing my ankle was broken into four pieces, turned around to grab and take the hat back and my hands latched on to the hat.”

They both fell to the ground in the altercation. Through it all, Sparks recalled hearing the words, “Hitler” and “Nazi” and “Trump.” Brito then came over on top of him and “over and over again” he hit him.

Sparks spent 20 hours in the hospital and had to undergo surgery.
