ROCHESTER, Minnesota — Gabriel Majak couldn’t wait until election day to cast his vote.
The 35-year-old resident of Rochester, Minnesota was busted Wednesday for allegedly punching out a man wearing a Donald Trump mask on a downtown street, police said.
The victim, a 23-year-old, and a friend who was wearing a Hillary Clinton mask, had been posing for photos with passersby when Majak expressed his political opinion.
The punch shattered the man’s glasses but he was otherwise unhurt, KAAL-TV reported. Majak was charged with fifth-degree assault.
Majak has had numerous run-ins with the law in the past for disorderly conduct and trespassing, court records show. Last summer he was charged with making terroristic threats when he allegedly approached soldiers at an Army recruiting station and made a “throat-slitting” gesture, telling them that “future soldiers will have their heads cut off like chickens.”
The terroristic threat charge was later dropped when Majak pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct and agreed to seek treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. He served 49 days in jail.
