(AP) – Authorities say a Texas man who was seen on video punching another man as they argued over President Donald Trump has turned himself in after police obtained a warrant for assault.
Forty-four-year-old Jason Lata was booked in the Denton City Jail late Saturday and released a few hours later after posting bond. He turned himself in hours after a video circulated showing a man punching another man outside of a convenience store.
The video shows one man yelling profanities at another man and screaming “Turn it off!” as an anti-Trump song appeared to be playing in the background. It wasn’t clear whether Lata had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
