Woman charged after assaulting Man for wearing MAGA hat

An East Falmouth woman has been charged with assault and battery after hitting a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat off of a Man’s head at a Mexican restaurant.

Rosaine Santos pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Falmouth District Court and was released on her own recognizance on charges of disorderly conduct and assault and battery, according to court documents.

At around 8 p.m. Friday, Falmouth police were called to Mexican restaurant Casa Vallarta on Davis Straits Road, where a man said he was being verbally assaulted because of his MAGA hat.

The man pulled out his phone to record the incident, according to the police report. In the video Santos is seen walking behind him and hitting the hat off his head, the report says.

After police asked Santos why she was upset, she referred to the man with an expletive and said he should not be allowed to eat in a Mexican restaurant, the report says.

Santos showed signs of intoxication, the report says.

A police officer helped Santos leave the restaurant, but while walking past the man she had allegedly assaulted earlier, she hit him over the head again, the report says.

She was then handcuffed and arrested.

Santos is scheduled to return to court for a pretrial hearing March 20.
