A man has been arrested after a video showing a 16-year-old boy having a drink thrown in face for wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat went viral.
San Antonio Police confirmed that 30-year-old Kino Jimenez was arrested by detectives from the Robbery Task Force on a warrant of theft of person following an incident at a Whataburger restaurant in Thousand Oaks, Texas, in the early hours of July 4.
Footage, which has since been viewed more than two million times, shows 16-year-old Hunter Richard being verbally abused by a man while he was having a meal with his friends, before the suspect throws a drink in his face and walks away with the red MAGA hat.
“This is gonna go great in my f**king fireplace,” the man says as he walks away.
The incident went viral after the footage was posted onto Twitter by user @brxpug and Facebook by Patricia Spittler, believed to be one of the boy’s mothers, who asked users to help identify the "scum bag of the year."
“Jimenez was located in Universal City, Texas. Universal City police officers took Mr Jimenez into custody without incident,” San Antonio Police said in a statement to Newsweek.
“He was transported to the Robbery Unit to be interviewed by detectives assigned to the case. Mr Jimenez is being transported to the City Magistrate for booking.”
