While a man was at the polls voting in the primary in New Hampshire he reportedly smacked a teenage boy who was showing his support for President Trump and wearing a MAGA hat.
On Tuesday, Windham High School served as a designated polling location for the first national primary, and Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle made personal appearances at the site during the day.
A tent was set up where Trump supporters were gathered on the school grounds, and a 15-year-old boy whose mother described him as “the most patriotic kid you’d ever meet in your life” was wearing a MAGA hat while reportedly extending wishes of a good evening to the people as they were leaving the polling place.
Around 6:00 pm, a 34-year-old man later identified as Patrick Bradley strolled past the tent and encountered the teenager, who reportedly told him to have a good night.
Bradley allegedly had a strong reaction to the interaction with the young proponent of the 45th president’s reelection campaign. The man reportedly slapped the teenager across the face, and then allegedly took part in a physical altercation with two adults at the site that attempted to step in and help the boy. One of the people trying to assist was allegedly punched in the mouth by Bradley reportedly knocking one of his teeth loose.
In addition to reportedly using his hands on the people, Bradley was also accused of trying to damage the tent and destroying campaign signs during his alleged tirade.
The authorities were informed about the incident and Bradley was placed under arrest for the accusations. He was booked into the Rockingham County Jail for suspicion of three counts of simple assault, and one count of disorderly conduct, and Bradley was jailed in lieu of a $5,000 cash bail.
When speaking in front of the court on Friday, Bradley entered a not guilty plea and told the judge that he is suffering from mental health problems. He was also recorded as saying, “I made a huge mistake and I would really like to push forward with my life and work through this.”
