A Texas man who allegedly stole a teenager’s Make America Great Again Hat and threw a drink in his face at a San Antonio Whataburger on Tuesday night has been arrested.

The whole incident was captured on video and shows Kino Jimenez, 30, yanking a hat off of the head of Hunter Richard, 16. Jimenez told Richard, “This is gonna go right in my f**king fireplace, b*tch.” There is no evidence the two knew each other prior to the event.


Jimenez was tracked down by robbery task force detectives outside of San Antonio and arrested for theft of person, reported My San Antonio. (RELATED: Don Jr. Weighs In On Man Who Assaulted Teen, Stole MAGA Hat: What If This Was An Obama Supporter?)

Jimenez was fired from his job at San Antonio bar Rumble on Wednesday, just a day after the video went viral. Rumble wrote a Facebook post to condemn Jimenez’s actions.

“THIS BAR IS A SAFE SPACE FOR EVERYONE!” the post said. “No matter your race, creed, ethnicity, sexual identity, and political stance, you are welcomed here!”

Richard will continue to support President Donald Trump.

“I support my President and if you don’t let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” he told WOAI-TV. “I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me.”
