A 14-year-old girl is facing misdemeanor battery charges after allegedly punching a man dressed as President Trump while he was standing in line at a haunted house in Naples, Fla.
According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, the girl walked up to the man, punched him in the face, laughed and returned to her place in line with other juveniles, according to a USA Today report.
Both the victim and alleged assailant were waiting in line for the Naples Haunted Gross House.
The man asked her why she hit him and then found sheriff’s deputies to report the incident to.
While interviewing the girl and her parents, the responding deputy was told by a woman who identified herself as a Collier County School system employee that the punch was posted on Instagram.
The deputy told the parents that it was possible investigators would follow up since “the sole motivation was to strike ‘Trump.’ ”
