Texas sheriff threatens to charge driver over graphic anti-Trump sticker

Nehls posted a photo of the truck Wednesday on his personal Facebook page after he said he'd received several complaints from unhappy people in the Houston-area county. Fonseca is passionately opposed to Trump's presidency, particularly on the subject of his proposed border wall, and people reportedly tell her that they "wish they had the guts" to post similar anti-Trump messaging on their vehicles.

Karen Fonseca says she's been repeatedly stopped by law officers, but that they have no grounds to issue a citation.

KTRK reports Nehls said during a news conference that he had no regrets about the Facebook post.

The mother of 12 said she and her husband stand by the stickers and don't plan on taking them down. She said it is not intended "to cause hate or animosity".

A Texas sheriff says he could throw the book at a driver over his limited vocabulary and dislike for President Trump. However, Nehls also specifically cited the "offensive language" on the truck as a cause for concern.

Karen Forsenca said she and her husband have had the decal on their truck for nearly a year.

In response to the critics, Nehls posted the disorderly conduct law.




"One Texas motorist apparently found the flawless sticker to express certain feelings about how this past year has gone and so it was plastered, big and bold on the rear window of a truck". "They want to shake your hand".

Nehls later shared the Texas statute he was thinking of, which prohibits language that "tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace".

"Driver if the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office is stupid enough to arrest you and the DAs office is stupid enough to prosecute you I would be honored to defend you for free", comments Jose.

Nehls - a Republican who is considering a congressional bid, according to the Chronicle - has not responded to requests for comment. A day later, the driver said the sticker would not be coming down.

Even the ACLU Texas chapter got in on the frenzy.

In 2011, Tennessee officials said they'd begin ramping up their enforcement of bumper sticker language - although there haven't been many incidents reported. He filed a lawsuit against the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, claiming the sticker does not meet the Constitution's definition of obscenity.

Profanity is sometimes, but not always, protected under the First Amendment's right to free speech.
