After assaulting a man who was wearing a “Make America Great Again,” hat inside a Massachusetts restaurant, a Brazilian woman is now being charged.

She has been taken into ICE custody, according to officials.

Rosiane Santos was charged early in the month with disorderly conduct and assault and battery after police.

Santos also admitted to attacking a man because he supported Donald Trump.

Bryton Turner, 23, submitted video of Santos yelling at him while knocking the hat off his head at the Casa Vallarte restaurant in Falmouth.

Santos shared with local media at the time how she was actually the victim in the situation — despite a bartender at the restaurant saying Turner did nothing to provoke the alleged attack.

ICE officials later took Santos into custody after deciding that she was in the country illegally.

“Deportation officers with ICE’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested Rosiane Santos, an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil, today near Falmouth, Massachusetts,” shared John Mohan, said ICE spokesman.

“Santos is currently facing local charges for assault and other offenses. She is presently in ICE custody and has been entered into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts.”

But that’s not the only time wearing a MAGA hat got someone into serious trouble.

After attacking an Arizona man who sported a MAGA hat, the unidentified assailant was arrested.

Jonathan Sparks was allegedly walking in downtown Tuscon, Arizona, sporting Trump’s signature red campaign hats while holding a pro-GOP sign a week before the midterm election when he was attacked according to KVOA News 4.

“I felt a very strong grasp on my hat. It pulled me back and grabbed a lot of hair,” Sparks said. “The assailant jumped onto my ankle from behind and so I, not knowing my ankle was broken into four pieces, I turned around to grab and take the hat back.”



Sparks shared how both he and the assailant fell to the ground.

“Then I heard the words Hitler, Nazi and Trump. He was shouting things like that,” Sparks said. “He came over the top of me and over and over again, he hit me.”

Until police arrived, bystanders ran over and pulled the attacker off Sparks and held the assailant to the ground.

The Tuscon Police Department shared with KVOA that the unidentified man was arrested for assault.

Sparks then spent a total of 20 hours in the hospital and has been recovering from foot surgery.

He shared how he probably would not have been attacked if he was carrying an anti-Trump sign, “a rainbow sign, or I was a black guy which then, I think there would be a sea of reporters here.”

Sparks said he was dawning the hat and sign to make a statement as he truly believes Trump is a “fantastic president.”

“I think that intolerance to his ideology was the flame,” Sparks said in regards to the incident.

Despite being attacked by an “evil man,” he was grateful for the people who did help him.

“There were people who pulled him off, paramedics who stayed with me, there is a police officer that protected me,” Sparks shared.

Ever since Trump took office, altercations with folks wearing MAGA hats are not an uncommon occurrence.

One man was arrested in July in San Antonio after a viral video captured him harassing a teen wearing the hat at a fast food restaurant.

The teen, Hunter Richard, later received a new hat signed by the president.
