Kino Jimenez, 30, was arrested Thursday night following the internet outing him as the man who took a MAGA hat off of 16-year-old Hunter Richard while dining at a San Antonio Whataburger.

He uses a number of expletives at the teens as he walks away, and as he leaves says, "This is going to go great in my f****** fireplace". They posted the video online to try to find the man, but it went viral, and now people are posting the address where they believe the attacker might live. "I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me", he said, local daily News4 reported. Jimenez is heard saying on camera after tossing a large drink in the direction of the person filming the video.

According to the Independent, Patricia Spittler - thought to be the mother of one of the boys - also shared the video on Facebook, which received more than 2 million views before it was removed. "He kept his hat, too".

"The person in that video is just a bully who's been a bully to me, to my brothers, to everyone I've known", the suspect's alleged younger brother told WOAI-TV on the ground's of anonymity for safety reasons. Donald Trump, Jr. saw the video and asked Twitter users to help track down the teen so that he could send him a new MAGA hat signed by President Trump.

Avenatti suggests he could run against Trump in 2020
Avenatti says the court filing is "part of a smear campaign" and stressed that he doesn't personally owe any of the money. This echoes a previous tweet he made in June, which suggested a presidential run has been on the lawyer's mind.

"No guest should ever feel unwelcome in one of our restaurants and we are taking this matter very seriously". A man approached the group, grabbed the hat, and threw his drink at the teens as he shouted profanity and a racial slur, apparently berating them for supporting President Trump, per Fox News.

Whataburger said on Twitter Thursday afternoon that no restaurant employees witnessed the incident.

Jimenez, has reportedly been fired from his job and police are still investigating the incident.

The bar's post did not name the man, but said, "we do not condone the actions or behavior that were displayed in the cell phone video, and we never will". That incident came on the heels of President Donald Trump's Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders being asked to leave a Lexington, Virginia restaurant where she was dining with members of her family.
