BREAKING: Student Arrested for Assaulting Classmate & Teacher Over ‘MAGA’ Hat

Jo-Ann Butler, a 17-year-old senior at Union Mine High School, was arrested after assaulting a classmate and a teacher during an altercation which started over a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Butler was suspended from school for one week, and faces two counts of battery after grabbing the “MAGA” hat from her fellow student’s head, and for slapping a teacher who intervened.

According to police, Butler began “verbally berating” the Trump-supporting student, calling the hat “a racist, hateful symbol,” and said the assault was to “wake people up in some type of way.”

After being escorted from the classroom, Butler reportedly came back in, and attempted to confront the hat’s owner again, but was stopped by the teacher, who she then physically struck, prompting police to be called.
