A Boynton Beach man says he got attacked in his yard — on Independence Day, no less — for his support of Donald Trump.
Jeff Good said he was watching fireworks in his driveway when a driver pulled up and told him to remove a Trump flag from his yard.
“He was saying vile things about our president,” Good told WPTV-Channel 5.
Good said he wouldn’t remove the flag so the driver punched him.
Good hit back, but the man stepped on the gas with Good’s arm stuck in the car, according to WPEC-CBS12, a news partner of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
“He took me about 30 feet, until I finally broke loose, and I fell on the ground there,” Good said. “He kept on going and disappeared.”
Good was not seriously hurt but wound up with scrapes on his hands and elbow.
“My political goal here is just to express my love for this president, and for somebody to punch you in the face for just presenting the flag to the public, that is enough said right there,” Good told Channel 5.
Boynton Beach police describe the suspect as an older white man who was driving a two-door silver car.
