Woman with 'Fuck Trump' truck decal adds sheriff's name after being arrested

Woman with 'Fuck Trump' truck decal adds sheriff's name after being arrested

She added a profane message against Nehls, whom she previously worked with at the Fort Bend County jail, after her arrest related to a 2015 investigation into alleged fraudulent possession or use of identifying information.

She placed the slightly smaller decal to the right of the anti-Trump sticker. Karen Fonseca, who was arrested just before the weekend on an unrelated fraud warrant, unveiled a decal on her truck's back window that says "F-Troy Nehls and F-You For Voting for Him".

A Texas woman with a "F**k Trump" sticker plastered on her pickup truck has now added another expletive-filled message in honor of the sheriff who threatened her with disorderly conduct charges.

Karen Cook Fonseca, who owns the truck with her husband, told CNN she put the decal up about 11 months ago.

This sheriff-citizen dust-up started when Nehls posted a photo of Fonseca's truck on Facebook and wrote: "I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359". That was additionally when Fort Bend County District Attorney John Healey said he would not acknowledge charges, considering what he thought about the case.

He asked for tips on the identity of the truck's owner and said he would "like to discuss it" with the owner. Fonseca was later released on bond.

Along with her attorney and family, Fonseca held a press conference outside the Fort Bend County Justice Center Monday morning "regarding the injustice against" her by "Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy E. Nehls". "We have to protect people's First Amendment right to free speech", Reynolds said ahead of the news conference.

"You have a problem with political speech?"

"It's hard to believe that a simple sticker could cause so much arousal", Fonseca said Thursday before her arrest.

She and her husband have had the "F_k Trump" sticker for almost a year.

In response to the new decal revealed Sunday, Nehls said, "It doesn't surprise me".
