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

Driver speaks after 'F*** TRUMP' truck sticker photo goes viral

Houston-area sheriff goes after driver with 'offensive' anti-Trump decal

After a Fort Bend County sheriff expressed concern via Facebook about potential conflicts stemming from a truck's offensive sticker about President Trump, the owners of the truck are speaking out.

In his post, Nehls said there could be charges against the driver: "I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359".

In a move that has sparked controversy about freedom of speech, authorities in Texas announced they are looking for the owner of a pickup truck who has been driving around with a "F-k Trump" decal on the rear window. Nehls' office tells Bustle that the local press conference that the sheriff gave on Wednesday - which was reportedly organized due to "the high volume of interview requests" - would be the extent of his comments on the matter.

"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", Nehls wrote. Some said the owner of the truck was well within his or her First Amendment rights, while others said the language used was profane and offensive.

The county sheriff says he received complaints about the sticker and it may be illegal. Fonseca said she's surprised Sheriff Nehls couldn't reach her. "I hate profanities that can be seen or heard by children that breeches my peace". And she says she speaks for many.

"I did not believe it was a prosecutable case based on the definition of disorderly conduct", said Healey, who is also a Republican but is not seeking re-election, according to the Chronicle.

"Hey Sheriff Snowflake, how about you get out and fight some real crimes?" wrote a commenter. She said the decal had attracted attention before and that she had been pulled over, but had never gotten a ticket.

Healey, the district attorney, told the Chronicle that his office was not contacted before Nehls posted the photo to Facebook. "They smile. They stop you", Fonseca told ABC affiliate KTRK.

The Texas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union offered to help Fonseca - and provided Nehls with a "Constitutional Law 101" lesson: "You can't ban speech just because it has [f--] in it".

"It's just our freedom of speech and we're exercising it", she said.

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