Texas Sheriff Publicly Threatens to Charge Driver Over Anti-Trump Sticker

A Texas sheriff has sparked outrage on social media after threatening to file disorderly conduct charges against a driver displaying an anti-Trump bumper sticker. Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls, a Republican eyeing a bid for Congress, singled out the driver in a public Facebook post that he said was meant to help identify the driver—and tagged numerous high-profile figures and news outlets in the post. “I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359,” he wrote. “If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you,” he said, claiming a prosecutor was ready to file disorderly conduct charges. Nehls told the Houston Chronicle he’d received numerous complaints about the bumper sticker, which reads, “F--- Trump and f--- you for voting for him.” District Attorney John Healey said he was not informed of the issue until Nehl’s Facebook post, according to the Chronicle. Healey said he “did not believe it was a prosecutable case based on the definition of disorderly conduct.”
