Florida Girl Charged With Punching Man Dressed as Donald Trump In The Face At Haunted House

Newsweek 1 month ago

A man who dressed up as President Donald Trump for a Halloween outing last weekend was standing in line at a haunted house exhibit when a teenage girl allegedly ran up to him and slugged him across his left jaw.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office reported that the girl then dashed away and rejoined her other juvenile friends at the county fairgrounds in Naples.

The sheriff's office reported that after the 14-year-old punched the man, who was there with his family, the teenager laughed while running away.

The USA Today reported that the man approached the girl to confront her about striking him, and asked her why she did it. He then found a fairgrounds worker to find a deputy to begin filing a report.

They ultimately found a deputy, who began questioning the girl and her parents. A woman who claimed to be an employee of Collier County Schools went to the deputy during the interview with the teenager's parents to say the incident had already been posted to Instagram.

The deputy said that since the incident had the "sole motivation to strike Trump," investigators could follow up with the girl and her family. The girl faces misdemeanor battery charges, the deputy said in his report.

This incident happened at the Naples Haunted Gross House on Saturday around 8:40 p.m. at the annual Halloween-themed event at the fairgrounds. One day later, President Trump was booed and jeered while making an appearance at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington.

Then one day later in Chicago at the conference for the International Association of Chiefs of Police, he got drawback from the Chicago mayor and its police chief, and there were anti-Trump protests in the streets.

It wasn't all bad for Trump the last three days, though. On Sunday, Trump announced that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been killed by U.S. special forces in a "very dangerous mission." And on Monday, the S&P 500 hit an all-time high after just falling short of the mark last Friday.

Bizarre events like the one Saturday in Naples are nothing new in Florida. Stories just in the last 48 hours include:

  • A man in Port Charlotte stole condoms and lubricant from a Walmart, only to leave his cell phone at the scene, per this NBC report.
  • In New Smyrna Beach on Sunday, a man jumped off his surf board and landed on a shark at the "shark bite capital of the world," according to Fox News.
