Woman With ‘F*ck Trump’ Truck Sticker Has Been Arrested

A Texas woman’s pickup truck received national attention this month because of the large and profane decal that read: “FUCK TRUMP AND FUCK YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.” Of course, this message was pissing a lot of people off in the Lone Star state, so much so that local authorities were considering charging the owner—identified as Karen Fonseca—with disorderly conduct. On Thursday, Fonseca was arrested.

According to Houston’s KHOU, the woman was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant. She posted bond and was released shortly after.

“I had just bought me soup was going to go to the house. I turn around and he says, ‘I'm not going to put handcuffs on you. I'll follow you to your house, park your truck and come with us,’” Karen Fonseca said after her release. “I go, 'A warrant? I've been doing background checks recently, and they've all come out clear.’”

The warrant stems from a 2015 incident in which Fonseca was accused of fraudulent possession or use of identifying information. The case was reported reviewed in July of this year, when the warrant was issued.

Fonseca said she was convinced her politics played a part in her arrest.

“I'm almost certain it does have to do with this,” she said. “People abuse the badge, and in my opinion, money talks. When you're in politics, people know how to work the system.”

The women’s truck went viral after Bend County Sheriff Troy E. Nehls posted an image of it on Facebook asking the public to identify the owner. He wrote: “I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you. 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.”

After many people and organizations, including the ACLU, accused him of ignoring First Amendment rights, Nehls insisted he wasn’t trying to censor the owner; he just wanted to “prevent a potential altercation between the truck driver and those offended by the message.”

Foresca and her husband, Mike Foresca, told KHOU they don’t intend to remove the decal.

“No plans to take it down,” Mike Foresca said. “Unless he can show me where it says that in the law book, it's not coming down until the weather takes it down or I replace it with something else.”
