Police in Asheville, North Carolina have issued a warrant for a South Carolina man after he allegedly sucker-punched a 69-year-old woman outside GOP nominee Donald Trump’s rally Monday night, reports WLOS.
Police state that they arrested five people outside of the rally, and have issued a warrant for Richard Campbell of Edisto Island, South Carolina for assault on the woman.
In an interview, Shirley Teter said she was outside the rally and was responding “Dump, dump, dump,” as fans of the GOP presidential candidate chanted “Trump, Trump, Trump,” stating ” It was kind of comical.”
Teter said she became involved in protesting against Trump because, “I ran into another situation that was sickening my heart.”
Confronting Campbell, she claims she said, “You better learn to speak Russian, and I said the first two words are going to be, ha ha. He stopped in his tracks, and he turned around and just cold-cocked me.”
According to the woman, she fell over her oxygen tank, resulting in sore ribs, a sore jaw and a cut on her elbow. She was later transported to a local hospital and then released.
Police state they did not arrest Campbell at the time because they didn’t see the incident.
According to WLOS, Teter called the station after her interview and asked if people would find a Trump supporter punching her in the face deplorable.

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.

The two leaders are meeting for the second time in a year in a bid to ease tensions over border disputes, the troubled Kashmir region and China's domination of trade between their huge economies.
Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
Trump claimed ‘inequality is down’ — one day later federal data showed the exact opposite is true
