Texas Driver With ‘F-Trump’ Sticker Adds Local Sheriff To Truck Display For Threatening Her
A Texas woman who was targetted by a local sheriff over an anti-Trump bumper-sticker on her truck is now going after the trump-loving sheriff for threatening her.
Karen Fonseca was arrested on an outstanding warrant last week after Sheriff Troy Nehls called for disorderly conduct charges over a “f*ck Trump” message oh a pickup truck she and her husband drive.
“F*ck Trump and f*ck you for voting for him,” the sticker read.
in response to the sheriff’s attack, she added a second profane message against Nehls: “F*ck Troy Nehls and f*ck you for voting for him.”
The ACLU of Texas offered to assist Fonseca after the sheriff posted a photo of the truck on Facebook and claimed the prosecutor had approved charges — which the district attorney disputes.
“The change came about today,” said Fonseca according to KVII-TV. “We had been thinking about it and deciding that Troy Nehls didn’t think twice when he put the Facebook post up and exposed me and my family. We’re getting more positive than negative. I feel it was gone about the wrong way and the sticker is appropriate.”
Fonseca was released from jail Thursday after she was arrested in front of her 6-year-old daughter at her family’s Stafford home.
“I think it’s the sticker,” said husband Mike Fonesca.
Her attorney questioned the sheriff’s Facebook post, which has since been deleted.
“I think it’s ludicrous the sheriff needed to go to Facebook to locate her,” said attorney Brian Middleton. “He has professional detectives under his employment who could have easily found Ms. Fonseca.”
The sheriff, a Republican who is not seeking re-election, blasted at Fonseca after learning about her new message.
“It doesn’t surprise me,” Nehls said. “Her behavior is disgusting.”
