A prosecutor in North Carolina has stated that charges will be filed against a Trump supporter whose campaign sign was vandalized.
According to WRAL, the “Trump Won” sign of prominent Republican industrialist John Kane was kicked by a male cyclist and then set on fire a few days later.
Kane possessed footage of the incidents.
Monday, Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman announced that the man will be charged with a misdemeanor in relation to the incident.
According to the News & Observer, Freeman stated that the suspect will be charged with two counts of misdemeanor damage to real property.
Freeman stated that she could not identify the suspect publicly until he was duly served.
Kane had posted a reward offer on X, formerly known as Twitter, for information leading to an arrest.

Kane indicated his displeasure with the accusations in a video he uploaded to Rumble.
“This man could have killed my children,” he said.
“By way of your actions in this instance, you deserve no respect, and you are certainly not doing what’s right,” he said in the video, addressing Freeman.
