Memo to the fearless “Resistance” members out there. If you plan on making a public spectacle of yourself because you can’t handle the results of an election, make sure you don’t have any outstanding arrest warrants.
The driver of a pickup displaying an expletive-filled message to President Donald Trump and his supporters in the Houston area was arrested Thursday on an outstanding warrant.
Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office records show Karen Fonseca was arrested about 2 p.m. Thursday on an outstanding fraud warrant issued in August by the Rosenberg Police Department. She remained in the county jail Thursday night with bond set at $1,500.
A sheriff’s spokesman has not answered a message seeking details behind the warrant.
Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls had threatened Fonseca with a disorderly conduct charge over the decal. However, District Attorney John Healey said he didn’t think it would have been a prosecutable case.
Fonseca had said she would not remove the decal. She said she had been stopped by law officers, but that they have no grounds to issue a citation.
“It’s not to cause hate or animosity,” the 46-year-old Fonseca told the Houston Chronicle. “It’s just our freedom of speech and we’re exercising it.”
Sure, no hate or animosity, just fuck you for voting for someone I don’t like or something.
Nehls on Wednesday posted a photo of the truck message on Facebook alongside a request to speak with the driver.
Nehls in his post said that a county prosecutor told him the message could warrant a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. But at a news conference later Wednesday, he seemed to back away from that idea. Nehls said he supports freedom of speech but worried that profane messages could incite others and lead to confrontations that would disturb the peace he’s pledged to keep.
A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office, which covers the county just southwest of Houston, said Thursday that Nehls’ post was removed once the pickup driver was identified.
“Due to the hate messages he has been receiving toward his wife and children, the sheriff will not be commenting on the matter further,” spokeswoman Caitilin Espinosa said by email.
On the upside for Fonseca, she’s sure to become a celebrity once she makes bail, and is sure to do all the national TV rounds basking in her new-found fame.
