Texas sheriff threatens charge for anti-Trump decal

Houston-area sheriff goes after driver with 'offensive' anti-Trump decal

The truck is often seen along FM 359, a state highway near Richmond, Nehls wrote. "Our prosecutor has informed us she would accept disorderly conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it", he wrote.

Nehls, a Republican reportedly considering a run for Congress, claimed that county prosecutors were willing to push the disorderly conduct charges, but District Attorney John Healey says not so. It reads, in part, "Uses abusive, indecent, profane or vulgar language in a public place, and the language by its very utterance tends to incite an immediate breach of peace". "It's just our freedom of speech and we're exercising it".

"Is it a slow news day in Fort Bend County, or worse yet, isn't there any real crime?"

At the news conference, Nehls said he is hoping to remedy the situation by talking to the truck owner and getting the driver to modify the decal.

"F*** TRUMP AND F*** YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM" reads the decal in bold white letters. She said her family is expressing their First Amendment rights and voicing their dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump.

Nehls defended his post, commenting "It is important to respond to calls from residents, yes". KPRC 2 spoke with a legal analyst who cited the 1971 Supreme Court case Cohen v. California, which overturned a man's conviction who had been charged with disturbing the peace for wearing a jacket that proclaimed the message "f*ck the draft" in a public courthouse.

Voting breakdown for Rugby World Cup 2023 is very humbling
We owe it to ourselves, the government and people of Ireland who have been very enthusiastic about it to fight to the end for it". World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont said: "We've been fortunate to have three great bids".

"Well if we're going to crack down on offensive vehicle decor, then please do something about all the heavy breasted naked women stickers and testicles hanging off the backs of trucks", posted Jessica Seathoff.

It's not uncommon for bumper stickers to bluntly convey political viewpoints, from messages such as "Impeach Clinton" during Bill Clinton's presidency to "Hail to the Thief" after George W. Bush's 2000 election win over Al Gore.

Though Fonseca has been confronted about the sticker, she says it's never caused too big of an issue.

She also said she used to work for Nehls in the county jail.

However, The Houston Chronicle did name one of the truck's drivers - Karen Fonseca, whose husband reportedly owns the truck.

The sheriff said his concern was that the language on the sticker could cause a unsafe confrontation. "I don't want to see anything happen to anyone".
