Cops: Bar Patron Spit On Man Wearing "Make America Great Again" Hat

After telling a fellow bar patron who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat to “go back to Russia you fucking communist,” a Florida Man spit on the Donald Trump supporter, according to police who arrested the attacker for battery.

Investigators say Robert Youngblood, 67, and two friends were seated Friday night at the bar in the Hurricane Grill & Wings restaurant in Vero Beach when they were approached by Matthias Ajple, a 43-year-old engineer.

As reported in an arrest affidavit, Ajple told Youngblood, “You should go back to Russia you fucking communist.” Ajple then slapped the brim of Youngblood’s red MAGA hat and “spit on Youngblood and then left the scene.”

Youngblood, cops say, wrote down the assailant’s license plate number and provided it to police. The tag came back to a car registered in the name of Ajple’s wife.

After Youngblood positively identified Ajple as his attacker, Ajple told sheriff's deputies that, “I was just trying to protect you guys because I support law enforcement. Trump supporters are communist and racist.” He continued, “I don’t even care that I’m going to jail, this is actually exciting. Plus, I have more time on this earth than he does anyway, he probably feels so good about himself.”

Seen above, Ajple was booked into the county jail on a battery count. He spent several hours behind bars before posting $500 bond to secure his release early Saturday morning.

Ajple, who was born in Germany, is scheduled for a November 19 hearing on the misdemeanor charge.

According to Florida voter records, Ajple is a registered Democrat, while Youngblood is a registered Republican.
