Workplace Argument Over Trump, Iran Ends In Fisticuffs (And Then Handcuffs)

A workplace dispute over “recent world issues in Iraq/Iran” ended yesterday with the arrest of a Florida maintenance man who allegedly punched a coworker in the face after becoming “irate over issues he has with President Trump,” police say.

According to an arrest affidavit, Armando Colon, 55, attacked Benjamin Martin “over an argument.” The men work together at On Top of the World, a 55-and-older condominium development in Clearwater.

Martin and two witnesses told cops that Colon was “the only aggressor” during an argument Wednesday morning about Trump and international affairs.

When Martin sought to “leave the area due to defendant’s attitude,” Colon allegedly attacked his fellow worker, striking him in the face with a punch that resulted in a small laceration. “The defendant became irate over issues he has with President Trump,” a cop reported.

Colon, seen above, was arrested for battery. He was freed from the county jail early this morning after posting $500 on the misdemeanor count.
