A Texas man who was arrested in July for stealing a teen’s “Make America Great Again” hat and throwing a drink in his face at a Whataburger restaurant has been indicted by a grand jury.
30-year-old Kino Jimenez was charged with theft of person. He could serve time in state jail if convicted.
Kino Jimenez’s trial is scheduled to begin October 19.
Jimenez stole 16-year-old Hunter Richard’s cap on July 3. The teen captured a video of Jimenez criticizing him for supporting President Trump as he sat in the San Antonio restaurant with friends.
“You ain’t supporting s—, n—-!” a man identified as Jimenez is heard saying on camera after tossing a large drink in the direction of the teen 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.
Authorities identified Jimenez from the video and arrested him at his home July 6 on a warrant for theft of person. He was booked and released later that day on $5,000 bond.
Police returned the hat to Richard following the arrest, but the teen also received a duplicate hat — autographed by President Trump.
