A Trump supporter was detained on assault and resisting arrest charges after an incident at a rural Democrats rally in Marble Falls, Texas, a small town northwest of Austin.
The incident began when Reynol P. Gray came to the Turn Rural Texas Blue Rally to protest, and things quickly escalated.
“The rally, hosted by local Democratic clubs, featured speeches by Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Mike Collier, state Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa, and others,” reported Brigid Cooley. “Police were called to the rally after Gray began yelling profanities at event speakers and made his way toward the pavilion stage.”
Sgt. Cory Munoz of the Marble Falls Police Department, who responded to the incident, stated in an affidavit that when he arrived on the scene, he found Gray dressed in “Trump attire” and fighting with a male who was “defending himself.”
Gray resisted arrest after being seized, according to Munoz, who said he “pulled his hands away from me and began to turn his body to prevent me from being able to hold his wrists,” and refused to stand after being lowered to the ground to be handcuffed.
Other minor outbreaks of politically motivated violence have occurred across the country, according to this study. Another man was detained in Pennsylvania for reportedly assaulting a man waving a “Biden Beat Bozo” banner.
Texas was also a significant hub for the crowd that stormed the Capitol on January 6; numerous people have been arrested, including a Waco guy who boasted that he felt “invincible” during the disturbance, and five members of the same Borger family were charged last week.
