A couple from Indiana have been arrested after they allegedly ran two teenage Donald Trump supporters on bikes off the road. Associated Press reports that 23-year-old Kyren Gregory Perry-Jones and 18-year-old Cailyn Marie Smith have been accused of running into the two 14-year-old boys and making threats toward them. The incident took place on July 22, 2019, but the two were identified by Hobart police through numerous Snapchat videos.
In a probable cause affidavit, the two boys reported the incident to officers and said a man driving with a woman passenger followed them. Later, the driver pulled up beside the boys and asked one of them "if they were Trump supporters," and he responded that they were. They allegedly had flags that showcased their support for the President on their bikes.
After they confirmed they were supporters of Trump, the driver allegedly swerved into them and forced them onto grass by the side of the road. He followed them for longer, and is said to have then exited the car to tear the flag from one of their bikes. He then ran the flag over, and fled the scene. Perry-Jones and Smith have been charged with two felony counts of intimidation and criminal recklessness in connection with the crime, for which they also were charged with theft and criminal mischief.
The couple allegedly posted a video of the incident to Snapchat, with Perry-Jones threatening to beat them up.
