Florida Man Charged for Stealing Naked Trump Statue

A Florida man has been charged with grand theft and burglary for stealing a naked Donald Trump statue on Sept. 22. Pedro Rodriguez, 36, is accused of taking the statue from a roof in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami. A witness reportedly saw Rodriquez drop the statue, one of five made by a Cleveland artist, into the back of his pickup truck before making off with it. Eugene Lemay, president of Mana Contemporary, which owns the statue, said the incident would “not undermine our determination to stand strong for what it represents and what we want to communicate: a profound statement against any forms of bigotry, racism, and discrimination during this presidential election campaign.” The naked Trump statues have been displayed in New York City, Seattle and Los Angeles.
