FALMOUTH (CBS) – A Falmouth woman has been charged with disorderly conduct after confronting a customer who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at a Mexican restaurant.

Police say Rosiane Santos walked by Bryton Turner as he was eating dinner at Casa Vallarta and knocked the hat off his head. She then allegedly confronted him verbally.

He recorded some of the confrontation on his cell phone. “I’m just trying to sit here and eat a nice meal,” Turner says in the video as Santos grabbed his President Trump-inspired hat.

Police arrived and had difficulty removing Santos.

“It’s just a hat at the end of the day,” Turner told WBZ. “I don’t really understand why people can’t just express themselves anymore, everybody has to get mad.”

Before he recorded the video, Santos allegedly tried to shove Turner’s face in his food.

The bartender, who is of Mexican descent, said Turner was minding his own business. “The lady didn’t agree with his hat and I just kept telling her it’s alright, he’s not doing anything to me why is it even a problem,” bartender Geo Macario said.

On Monday, a group of anti-Trump activists was sprayed by a plow driver, as they protested the president’s policies on the town common.

  1. Deport her back to Brazil ! She is a bigot, look up the definition.

  2. It’s not “just a hat.” It’s an antagonistic hyper-ideology participated in by highly antagonistic people. No one wears that hat without the intent of antagonizing others. Stop trying to play the victim role.

      You are the one right now spewing hate. MAGA means Make America Great Again which is what our President, yes, he is yours too, is trying to achieve. You don’t want America Great just because he is making it great. Shame to hate your own country so much.

      Sorry, but it’s only antagonistic to people who care about it. We wear those hats not to be antagonistic but because we care about the message. It’s other peoples faults they can’t control their own feelings.
