Kino Jimenez, 30, found himself behind bars after allegedly stealing a Texas teenager’s “Make America Great Again” hat and dumping a drink on him.

Jimenez was held in the Bexar County jail overnight and is accused of felony theft.

Bexar County published Jimenez’s arrest information.

The Bexar Sheriff provided The Daily Caller with Jimenez’s mug shot from his arrest on July 5.

According to the San Antonio Police:

“This evening detectives assigned to the Robbery Task Force were able to locate the suspect in the ‘Whataburger’ incident. Warrant #1653732 was issued for the suspect Kino Jimenez 30 years (Sid# 905396). The aforementioned warrant is for Theft of Person. Kino Jimenez was located in Universal City, Texas. Universal City police officers took Mr Jimenez into custody without incident.”

There was an outpouring of support online for the victim, 16-year-old Hunter Richard.

The president’s son, Don Jr. called the act “disgusting and a disgrace,” asking, “Imagine someone did this to an Obama supporter?!?!”

Later Thursday, Don Jr. offered to get Richard a signed MAGA hat from the president.


In the fallout from the event, Jimenez has lost his job at a local bar and been kicked out of his political party.
