Altercation Leads to One Arrest After Man Calls Trump Supporters Racist

SPRING HILL – A man walks into to a café and says to another patron, “Hey I like your Trump hat” The man tips his hat and walks away. Another patron turns to the Trump supporter and says “You’re a racist.” Sounds like a there should be punchline at this end of this story, and don’t worry, there will be…

Robert Christenson and his girlfriend Stephanie Holbrook were standing in line at a Dunkin Donuts Tuesday, when Robert complimented a man’s “Make America Great Again” hat in passing. That’s when according to Robert, a man standing behind him said “You might as well say hey I’m a racist!” The insult led to a loud verbal altercation between the three and according to the “instigator,” Ioannis Papadopoulos, Robert and Stephanie began calling him a “Libtard” and “Socialist.” The yelling and screaming became such a disturbance that all three were asked to leave the establishment.

The arguing intensified once the trio stepped outside, and at one point Robert says Ioannis tried to run them over with a car. Ioannis denies that ever occurred and says Robert kicked his car as he was driving away. Ioannis says he drove across the street to the Shell Rapid Lube, located on the corner of Spring Hill Drive and Mariner Blvd to call 911. Ironically, that’s Robert’s place of employment. When Ioannis asked the store manager to call police, he was told to get out “get the f**k out of here!”

By this time, Robert made his way across the street to confront Ioannis about the near collision at Dunkin Donuts. That’s when according to Robert, Ioannis tried to run him over again. Like before, Ioannis denied that claim and says Robert, once again, kicked his car, leaving a large dent in the side.

Sheriff’s Deputies arrived on the scene, and after an investigation Robert was placed under arrest and charged with Criminal Mischief. He was released at the scene with a notice to appear in court.

Robert tells RNRF “It’s getting bad when I get arrested after a guy tried to run me and my wife over with his car.” Robert goes on to explain “The whole time he was yelling ‘I’m gonna do it I’m gonna run your fat b***h over’ but that’s perfectly legal so long as you don’t do it, and just come within inches of doing it.”

Ioannis tells RNRF “Trump’s supporters are aggressive and full of fear and hate. Might be an unpopular opinion around here, but it’s true. They support his idea to “ban Muslims” from entering our country, but deny there’s something fundamentally wrong with lumping all members of the same religion or ethnicity together (a la Nazi Germany) to penalize, punish, and discriminate against.”

A review of the official report showed no mention of a dispute starting over remarks made about Donald Trump. We asked the Sheriff’s Office to inquire with deputies about the allegations but we have not received a response.

Donald Trump’s campaign rallies have had their share of violent outbreaks, but a recently leaked video suggests that the Hillary camp may have paid operatives to incite violence at Trump rallies.

UPDATE: 10/21/2016, 9:08 A.M. – One of the responding deputies provided the following statement regarding the incident: Deputy Gary Russel says “I believe both parties indicated that the verbal argument was initially started over comments about Donald Trump inside the store. Neither party indicated any physical altercation took place.”

  • Didn’t he just lump ALL Trump supporters by calling them ALL racist, hateful and full of fear. I guess some people don’t even care about their own blatant hypocrisy.

  • This guy Robert is a tool! He is always on facebook making stereotypical comments about BLM and Liberals in general. He makes Trump out to be a Saint!

  • Muslim is not a race,its a religion so banning a group of people that hate us and our way of life is not racism its common sense,not supporting illegal aliens is not racism,it’s banning criminals that broke into this country.I never heard trump say lets deport law abiding citizens,he is against criminals.hillary just so happens to be one.also i was not there but it sounds like the Hillary supporter opened his mouth in the middle of a conversation he was not a part of and then damaged property that was not his.i saw a foot mark dented on the car i diddent notice a tire mark on an idiot.

    If all immigrants won’t agree to my race’s original laws they should go back to where they came from.

    Cherokee’s RULE! When will you be leaving?

  • How can it be considered racist to want to vet (know) everyone that we let into this country? Trump is NOT racist at all. He just cares about the safety and security of America. Hillary will let anyone and everyone in, no matter what their ideology, or criminal or terrorist intent. We only need immigrants that want to ASSIMILATE and become REAL Americans, like it used to be. People that will respect our laws (starting with the legal way to become an American). And, people that have skills, so they won’t be living off the backs of taxpayers, like many of the illegal and some legal immigrants do today. In the old days, an immigrant had to prove they could be self sufficient, and that they intended to assimilate, or they had to come in under a sponsor, or they didn’t get in. And, that’s the best way to have a safe, secure, and thriving country.

  • Hey Snofalapagas, I am guessing you do not want to make America Great again. You come here and think we are supposed to kiss your Muslim looking A_s. If you don’t like the way we think than maybe you should go back to where you came from.

    • Actually no video from the coffee shop was accessed. So…….

      Saturday, 22 October 2016, 2:23 pm
  • I don’t see how someone is racist because they want to control our borders from allowing terrorist & people who are not Americans into this country. How is someone racist because they want lower taxes. Hillary says she won’t raise taxes for the middle class but in the next sentence she wants to raise the payroll tax, meaning less money in your paycheck. He wants less regulations, she wants more. How could anyone vote for her when she steals money from the Haitian people from donations for the earthquake. She is so corrupt but people must not be reading the email which prove her corruption especially the fact that her campaign is sending thugs to start trouble at Trump rally & she knows about it. American must not let this country become an open borders, globalist society. If she win, we lose America. Trump is not a racist just because the Democrats say it’s so. Don’t believe the lies.

    • You speak the truth that so many are blind to! And I cannot figure out why? Anyway thanks for your comment!

      Saturday, 22 October 2016, 9:08 am
    • Trump wants to impose a 40% import tariff (tax) on a consumption based economy. That will impact everyone, regardless of class. Most Republicans in Congress will not support this, but there are some who will. Democrats will support it, since this has long be their Democrat/union position, so he might actually get it done.

Ophra made a comment with wich we should all reflect on regarding HRC.. ” you dont have to like her she will not be in your home” The truth is she will over take my home ….She will make decisions about my taxes, my health care , she will decide if my tshirt is made in China, Vietnam, Haiti. …it is sad when you have 2 choices corruption or idiocy.

  • I think that there is something very wonderful happening. In politics, I think Trump is doing it. In media and on campuses I’m doing it — in media you are doing it too.

    Pushing back against the people who want to control what you do, how you think, what you wear, who you read, what video games you play, what language you can use, who you can hang out with. That’s over now. It is not working anymore. It is all gone.

    And you can tell from the hysteria outside, you can tell from the furiousness of journalists at BuzzFeed and Gawker and Vice, and, and all those horrible places — You can tell from the ever-greater hysteria about ever-smaller subjects, you can tell they know the jig is up. You can tell from the atmosphere on campus. You just know, it is starting to dawn on these people, they’re starting to get the message that shouting, ‘racist!’ is not going to shut people up anymore.

    It doesn’t shut me up, it doesn’t shut anyone in this audience up. Now you’ve got to come with facts. Because for too long the bogus cult of social justice policed peoples’ lives. And forced people to watch them speak.

  • In all this, didn’t anyone notice the shoe imprint where the guy claims to “have been nearly run over”? Kinda hard to be run over while kicking at someones door. The whole story smells like doo-doo,

    Friday, 21 October 2016, 12:37 pm
    • You bring up a good point , I wonder if the police check to see if the print matched his shoe, it’s not unheard of for people to cause damage themselves to create a case. And given this guy’s mind set wouldn’t put it past him after reading how he snapped over a compliment.

      Friday, 21 October 2016, 1:19 pm
    • That’s ironic. I did notice the shoe print and thought it was an indication of how close the car may have come to him, actually supporting his argument.

    • Most likely why Christenson was arrested. That was probably the only physical evidence to corroborate either side.

  • Trump is the Pied Piper of this election cycle. Republicans have followed him blindly to the edge of the cliff and are now taking the life ending plunge over

    He knows he can’t win, this about retaining a core group of his supporters that he can somehow profit from. Will it be Trump tv or radio?

    Republicans should’ve won this election easily and they could’ve if they had picked a candidate who is mentally stable

    Friday, 21 October 2016, 10:40 am
  • Let’s be honest. When you have two radicals that hold opposing views, it often ends in conflict.

    One thinks all Trump supporters are racists, and the other is a 9/11 truther and uses terms like libtard. Was never going to end well.

  • corporations run this country your president is nothing more than a scapegoat puppet. special interest groups give donations and contributions or as I call them bribes and politicians will let everything and anything happen. The system is very corrupt and honestly you can elect a steaming pile of feces and it wouldnt make a difference. Its amazing how many people still believe the president is calling the Even main stream media is influenced and controlled by major corporate interest. You are spoon fed how to think how to feel how to act etc. Ever see something really obnoxious in the news being covered over and over? That means back door deals are happening while you worry about your favorite sports team or celebrity that might be having a few issues, while all that is occupying the average persons time, big lobby groups are getting bills signed off on and making all sorts of corrupt deals. The average and Im easily talking 90 percent plus of society is out there beating ones chest yelling clinton or trump like its a sporting event while major corporations are thankful people are so ignorant as they make violent felons look like choir boys. The common person has no idea the differences of the judicial, executive and legislative branches and their specific roles in government. Its just become a side show circus at the tax payers expense.

    • This is stated well. This past summer, it seemed for a minute that the American public was going to finally understand how their vote measures with the electoral college and “super-delegates”. Alas, it was not to be. Pray that someday the realities of the system will be wrapped in bacon and an episode of “Walking Dead”, and then we will all understand.

      Friday, 21 October 2016, 8:53 am
    • Gotta agree with some of this. But my question to you is HOW are we the people supposed to overthrow these jokers (or whatever ya wanna call it) if not by electing one who each person for whatever reasons believes is the best candidate to fix it? Or to help we the people fix it? You have brought to light something very obvious and very common public knowledge if only people could see it themselves. But you do not give a solution for us to fix it. So what would be your solutions? Or ideas?

  • I’ve been going to Shell Rapid Lube for 4 years and they are very respectful people, so I find that comment very hard to believe , sounds like this Ioannis guy likes weave his own stories. I didn’t see it but I know that line is very unlikely. As for the rest I’m not a political person but my mother always said if you got nothing nice to say keep your mouth shut 56 years an it still holds true.

  • And so the saga continues.

    Thursday, 20 October 2016, 9:00 pm
  • I know I will get a lot of flack for saying this, but I am a pro LGBT, vegetarian, agnostic, that does not believe in the death penalty, would like to legalize drugs (I don’t use), and am incredibly anti war.. and I do not see how people can lump all Trump supporters into one category, and most of my coworkers who do support him do not have a racist bone in their body, having an Asian, Black, and Hispanic coworker who support Trump I always tease them on being racist and we all get a good laugh out of it, because we all know it is an absolute rubbish argument.

    This Ioannis guy needs to calm down, and quit throwing out such rubbish and quite frankly bigoted views towards Trump supporters, it would be nice if a lot of other people would as well. I am fed up with people who do this sort of nonsense, it is out of hand.

    Just because someone does not share your political views, it does not make them inherently racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, and whatever other thing you want to lump them in with.. same goes with socialist, communist, fascist, totalitarian.

    Why can’t we all just get along?

    Thursday, 20 October 2016, 8:53 pm
    • because people are generally completely illiterate when it comes to politics. They are unable to have a debate over idea’s because they really don’t understand the views of various parties or the history of those involved, so they resort to ignorant name calling and shaming.

      Thursday, 20 October 2016, 10:01 pm
    • Very well said .

      Thursday, 20 October 2016, 10:39 pm
    • Well said Jeff! I don’t share your political views but you sound inteligent and have common sense, I’m sure we would get along.
      People have lost sight of the fact we all support different candidates for different reasons, but we are Americans and that trumps (no pun intended) politics, we should try harder to get along.

      Friday, 21 October 2016, 7:06 am
    • Ioannis tells RNRF “Trump’s supporters are aggressive and full of fear and hate. Might be an unpopular opinion around here, but it’s true. They support his idea to “ban Muslims” from entering our country, but deny there’s something fundamentally wrong with lumping all members of the same religion or ethnicity together (a la Nazi Germany) to penalize, punish, and discriminate against.” NO Ioannis, You started this You should keep Your mouth shut.. Just like a non Trump supporter , to start a fight cause thats all they know!! Robert God Bless you Your a good man ..

    Thursday, 20 October 2016, 8:45 pm
    • If you’re going to wear a hat that says you want ‘merica to be great again by instituting more “VooDoo Econ” people will know you’re a sheeple. I mean if that BS worked, then ‘Merica would have the strongest middle class, the highest standard of living for all; instead of dragging the bottom of the industrialized world.

      You do know that the Dow is at record highs, so if VooDoo worked… Been what 15 years since the W. Bush tax cuts… didn’t pay off the debt, nothing. You can throw blame all around, but what doesn’t change is that more liberal countries have higher standards of living, less crime, etc.

      If he wanted to make us great again, he wouldn’t be proposing an econ policy that we know doesn’t work. He’d be looking at policies that do work, like why Canada and other countries have been doing better for years.

      Friday, 21 October 2016, 3:56 pm
      • Why are the Canadians here getting our medical care, why is my wife gonna loose here job dec 1st for the new wage hr law shut it cause were about done with you idiots

        Saturday, 22 October 2016, 8:43 am
      • You do know our deficit has almost doubled, don’t you? You do know that under Bush the wage growth was 65% for the 1% and that under Odumdum it is at 95%, don’t you? That means that Odumdum only cares about the 1%. Same for Hil-LIE-ry. Why is she running on raising the wages and equal pay for women? Those are the same things Odumdum said 8 years ago and has done NOTHING about them. Didn’t he promise us that he would NEVER let Detroit go bankrupt? How is that ghost town doing and why has he done NOTHING? Why are we at unprecedented level of people on food stamps? Because the economy is so great? Wake up.
