BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — A Tennessee man is accused of pulling a gun on a couple wearing "Make America Great Again" hats inside a Sam’s Club store, WNKY reports.
The hat is associated with President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
James Phillips, 57, of Cottontown, Tennessee, is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment. An arrest report says he pulled a gun on the man inside the store Saturday after flipping him off.
WNKY reports the arrest citation said Phillips told police he made the gesture at the man and a woman with him because of the MAGA hats they were wearing.
The arrest report said the man made the same gesture to Phillips. Witnesses told police Phillips then pointed a gun at the man, which can’t be seen on video surveillance.
WNKY reports Phillips was carrying a .40-caliber Glock and two extra magazines in his pocket.
Authorities are holding Phillips in the Warren County Regional Jail.
