Lata was involved in a scuffle on Saturday outside of a Buc-ee’s convenience store that was captured on video and circulated on social media, according to police. Police said they later received a copy of the video.
The suspect in the video was seen standing with other men who were wearing Trump T-shirts.
The video shows the suspect, identified by police as Lata, wearing a hat and yelling profanities at another man. Lata was screaming “Turn it off!” as music played in the background. The music was apparently an anti-Trump song by rapper YG, the Associated Press reported.
During a verbal argument that ensued, Lata is seen on video punching the victim in the face.
Police said the victim suffered a cut below the right eyebrow and a broken tooth.
Lata was held on $15,000 bail in the Denton City Jail late Saturday, and was released a few hours later after posting bond, the Denton Record-Chronicle reported.
It wasn’t clear whether Lata had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
