BLOOMFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Police say a man was assaulted with a crowbar in the parking lot of a New Jersey restaurant for wearing a Donald Trump T-shirt.
Police say the 62-year-old victim was walking in Bloomfield last week when a man in a vehicle questioned him about the shirt featuring the Republican presidential candidate and cursed at him.
Authorities say the man got out of his vehicle and struck the victim several times with a crowbar.
