Deputies arrested a man March 4 after he punched a President Donald Trump supporter in the face after an argument outside Countryside Baptist Church.
Michael Robert Chriss, 64, punched Charles Duane Webster, 61, as the two joined a crowd of hundreds outside the church, located at 10926 NW 39th Ave. The crowd, primarily protesters, gathered following a town hall meeting with Rep. Ted Yoho in the church.
Yoho, a Republican who represents Florida’s 3rd Congressional District, which includes Alachua, Clay and Bradford counties and parts of Marion County, answered questions about issues such as Trump’s temporary travel ban, health care, LGBTQ+ rights and the alleged ties between the president’s administration and Russia. The protesters were not allowed inside the town hall and, instead, chanted and waved signs.
