An anti-Donald Trump supporter was arrested and charged last week after a verbal dispute about the president-elect’s policies turned violent at a bar in Pasco, Washington, according to the Tri-City Herald.
Alvaro Campos-Hernandez, 40, allegedly stabbed Raymond Williams, 29, an intoxicated Trump supporter, in the throat during a heated debate Wednesday at the Dugout Bar and Grill, the report says. Campos-Alvarez was charged with first-degree assault, and booked at Pasco’s Franklin County Jail.
The incident occurred about 11:30 p.m. when Campos-Hernandez tried to walk away from the argument when Williams allegedly called him a racial slur, Pasco Police Sgt. Scott Warren tells the Tri-City Herald:
“Campos went back and grabbed Williams and was yelling, ‘Say it again’ repeatedly,” said Warren.
Campos reportedly had Williams in a headlock and was holding a 7.5-inch folding knife to Williams’ throat. The victim drew a 3.5-inch folding knife to use in self-defense, but was unsuccessful, Warren said.
The two men struggled, and the fight ended with Williams suffering a 1-inch wound to his windpipe. He was taken to Lourdes Medical Center.
Warren told the news outlet that the incident “could have been a homicide,” adding that the victim is “extremely lucky.”
