A supporter of President was arrested after he sucker-punched a protester in Texas for reportedly playing the song 'F*** Donald .'

The Denton Police Department announced on Saturday that Jason Lata, 44, of Flower Mound, was charged with assault causing bodily injury.

Authorities obtained an arrest warrant for Lata after a 17-second clip that surfaced on social media showed him striking the victim, Dan Royce Schochler III, around 1pm. 

The incident happened outside a Buc-ee’s convenience store in Denton during a MAGA meet-up scheduled for 11.15am.

The footage begins mid-confrontation with Lata, who is not wearing a face mask, screaming at Schochler to 'turn it off!'

The song 'FDT' [F*** Donald ] by rappers YG and Nipsey Hussle is heard playing in the background as another supporter tells the protesters 'you guys shouldn't even be here.'
