UPDATE: Following the publication of this report, Richard Losey was arrested and charged with suspicion of battery assault with a hate crime enhancement. He was held on $50,000 bail. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

A counter-protester sucker-punched a black Trump supporter at Sunday night’s America First: Vigil for Victims of illegal immigration rally in Laguna Beach, California.

“I engaged a few people in dialogue but in scholarly dialogue as I try to do with the crew at these kinds of rallies,” R.C. Maxwell, the black man who was punched, told Big League Politics.

“The first time I was attacked it was a timed attack, someone tugged at my MAGA hat, then someone else hit me from behind and then tried to drag me into the street,” said Maxwell, who runs the American Voice PAC. He was carrying a copy of Milo Yiannopoulos’ book Dangerous as a means of protest.

“I’m no brute, never looking for fights at these things just the opportunity for dialogue, inform the other side of what our belief system is etc…,” Maxwell said.

“But obviously there is an uptick in violence at these things, and a republican, especially a black one, is a dangerous game in 2017,” Maxwell said.
