Florida Man Says He Was Punched, Dragged by Car for Having Trump Flag in Front Yard
A Florida man says he was attacked because he displayed a Trump flag in his front yard, according to local news reports.
Jeff Good said that he was watching the Fourth of July fireworks when someone began yelling at him about President Donald Trump. “He was saying vile things about our president,” said Good, according to WPTV.
A car driver told Good that he had to remove the flag. After Good refused, he claims the driver punched him in the face. Apparently, while still sitting behind the wheel of the car.
According to WPEC, Good said his arm got stuck in the car, and he was dragged 30 feet. “I have some bumps and bruises that I don’t think you want to see,” said Good.

Donald Tarca Jr., a friend of Good’s, said the violence is unacceptable.

He added: “When Jeff told he would not the male then punched Jeff in the face when the favor was returned the male stepped on the gas and drug Jeff at least 30 feet down the road before he became free from the car. This is completely unacceptable.”
