Police are investigating after a school bus aide in Florida yelled at a student for wearing a Trump hat, ultimately ripping it off his head according to Breitbart.
The unidentified aide can be heard on surveillance camera yelling at 14-year-old Gunnar Johansson, “Boy, if you don’t … that hat off this bus… take it off. Take that hat off… take that hat off…”
Johansson said he wore the hat because the school allowed students to wear a hat of their choice if they donated to the March of Dimes.
“She, like, threatened me with a referral and threatened to turn the bus around. I said ‘write me up, I didn’t do anything wrong’, and then she yanked my hat off. It was crazy,” Johansson said to WPTV.
Johansson’s mother notified police of the incident after the school failed to make the surveillance recording available to her.
Martin County Lt. Ryan Grimsdale confirmed the investigation, saying, “The crux of our investigation will be the interaction directly, physically with the child and how that panned out.
