“I don’t even care I’m going to jail” said the Florida man who went to jail after assaulting a 67-year-old man in a MAGA hat:

A Florida man has been arrested after he spat on a man and slapped his “Make American Great Again” (MAGA) hat, according to police.
Matthias Ajple, 43, approached MAGA hat-wearing Robert Youngblood, 67, at a restaurant in the city of Vero Beach on Friday evening, according to an arrest affidavit.
Youngblood told an Indian River County Sheriff’s Office deputy he was sitting at the bar of Hurricane Grill on 943 15th Place with two friends, when Ajple walked over and said: “You should go back to Russia you f*cking communist.”
Ajple then slapped the brill of Youngblood’s hat, before leaning over a gate and spitting on him, the victim claimed. The suspect then left the scene.
We hope he finds his life as a convicted criminal as “exciting” as going to jail:

"I don't even care that I'm going to jail," he told deputies, "This is actually exciting"

What a clown.
