Florida Man Who Spit on Trump-Supporting Senior Will Serve Jail Time, Pay Restitution

(The Hill) A Florida man was sentenced to 90 days in jail after spitting on a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at a restaurant in southern Florida. 

According to Treasure Coast Newspapers, an Indian River County judge accepted a no-contest plea Thursday and determined 43-year-old Matthias Ajple was guilty of battery on 67-year-old Robert Youngblood. 

Surveillance footage at a restaurant in Vero Beach, Fla., shows Ajple placing what appears to be a paper towel on the head of Youngblood, who was wearing a MAGA hat.

According to court documents obtained by Treasure Coast Newspapers, Ajple told Youngblood, “You should go back to Russia you … communist,” before slapping his hat off and spitting on him.

“I was just trying to protect you guys because I support law enforcement. Trump supporters are communist and racist,” Ajple told the deputy. “I don’t even care that I’m going to jail; this is actually exciting.” 

“Plus, I have more time on this earth than he does anyway; he probably feels so good about himself,” Ajple said, according to the report.

In addition to the 90 days in jail, Ajple must pay Youngblood $155 in restitution and report to 72 hours of supervised probation.
