52-year-old Idaho resident Richard Sovenski was arrested this week after a video showed him hurling racial slurs at teenagers outside a local McDonald’s.
The Pacific Northwest Inlander reports that Sovenski was arrested and charged with “one count of misdemeanor battery and one count of felony malicious harassment, Idaho’s hate crime statute” by the Coeur d’Alene Police Department.
Sovenski was arrested days after he was caught on camera berating teenagers at a McDonald’s in Coeur d’Alene on July 12.
In the video, Sovenski can be seen following the teenagers out of the restaurant and attacking them with racist abuse.
“Why don’t you get a f*cking job,” he yells at them. “I will f*ck you up in a f*cking heartbeat you f*cking little f*ggot. Oh you f*ck you, you f*ckin’ half breed. Get the f*ck out of Idaho!”
The teenagers were part of a Christian youth group, and they were taken to the McDonald’s by group leader Jose Ceniceros as a treat after they had just attended the sermon of a guest preacher.
One witness told police that the teens with Ceniceros were “being rude, dancing and running around causing a disturbance,” although Ceniceros disputes that this was the case.
“The kids couldn’t really believe it,” Ceniceros tells the Pacific Northwest Inlander. “Five minutes earlier we were in church.”

Fox News on Tuesday briefly interrupted a speech being delivered by President Donald Trump at a Turning Point USA summit.
During his speech, Trump started talking about delivering a commencement address at the Air Force Academy.
"They said, sir, would you like to shake the hands of all the cadets? I said how many other? They said 1,100. I said yeah, that sounds okay,” Trump remarked.
“Do other presidents do it? Yes, they do. Do all of them? What they didn’t say is they start, then they peter out. That sun was beaming down, and if some of these guys are great athletes — some of the women, they had some women in the class, their hands were very strong, okay.”

Meghan McCain gets schooled after complaining Brett Kavanaugh was treated worse than Al Franken
Meghan McCain noticed the asymmetry in the accusations of sexual misconduct against Al Franken and Brett Kavanaugh, even if she overlooked how those allegations eventually played out.
"The View" tackled a New Yorker piece published by Jane Mayer, who believes the Minnesota Democrat was "railroaded" out of the U.S. Senate over sexual harassment claims, and McCain said Democrats had no choice but to force him to resign.
"Imagine him questioning Brett Kavanaugh at the time," McCain said, "which by the way, the writer who wrote this article, Jane Mayer, wrote a 2018 piece about allegations of Brett Kavanaugh that's been panned because the only corroborating witness said he had heard the story but he didn't remember it now, so it's very tricky."
