Couple at odds with Texas sheriff over anti-Trump sticker

Couple at odds with Texas sheriff over anti-Trump sticker

Nehls on Wednesday posted a photo of the truck decal on Facebook, adding that authorities could pursue disorderly conduct charges.

Nehls posted a photo of the truck on Facebook Wednesday and said a prosecutor had agreed that Fonseca was breaking the law. "I simply want to talk to the owner and say, 'Look, the last thing we need to do is have anyone have any confrontation over the language on your truck.' We have not threatened anybody with arrest". During the press conference, Nehls said he had no regrets about the controversial Facebook post.

"Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modificiation to it", he wrote.

Fonseca says she had the decal custom made eleven months ago.

It's unclear whether or not the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Department will proceed with disorderly conduct charges now that Forsenca and her truck have received national attention.

She also said she used to work for Nehls in the county jail. "I haven't seen anyone bat an eyelash at those, but you care about this?"

"Unless [Nehls] 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", he told local station KHOU.

"I understand I have 12 children of our own, at the same time, what we have on the back of our truck is nothing compared to what you see every day on the music videos, see on TV and video games". "They're like, 'we wish that we could do this and we had enough guts to do it, and you're doing it'".

Gadot's ultimatum for Wonder Woman franchise
Warner Bros . had chosen December 13 back when Episode IX was scheduled for May 2019, and under the wings of Colin Trevorrow . But Gal says she will not be a part of the Wonder Woman sequel since Brett Ratner had helped finance the original film.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas asked the truck owner to contact the organization and offered the sheriff a free legal tip.

The decal has gone viral several times, she said, and she gets plenty of feedback on the road.

But Fonseca says she's just exercising her rights.

The sheriff appeared later to back down from that idea, saying he supports freedom of speech.

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

A California judge ruled in a 1971 Supreme Court case, Cohen Vs. California, that a "Fuck the draft" jacket didn't break any statutes because it wasn't likely to incite violence.

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