A Muslim-American family enjoying a day out at a Texas beach were subjected to a barrage of racial abuse from a Donald Trump supporter.
Footage has emerged in which the inebriated man can be heard screaming: “Isis don’t mean s*** to me” and “Donald Trump will stop you”, as the family try to ignore him.
The video showed the man squaring up to members of the family, and shouting aggressively: “Sharia law don’t mean s*** to me!” as he paces angrily across the sand on South Padre Island.
Another holidaymaker can be seen trying to intervene, but the drunk man continued to approach the family, hurling further insults.
The 34-year-old man, named by police as Alexander Jennes Downing, was later arrested on charges of public intoxication.
“While enjoying our time at the beach during a family reunion, our kids and us had to experience ugliness and aggressiveness in the worst shape and form possible,” Noria Alward, who posted the video to YouTube, said.
The family had been enjoying a reunion at the three-star South Padre Pearl hotel and had been making use of the hotel’s private beach. However, Miss Alward claims the hotel did little to intervene, despite Downing being a fellow guest.
South Padre Police invited members of the public who witnessed what happened and who were offended by the incident to bring further charges against Downing.
“On May 3, 2017 Officers were dispatched to 310 Padre Blvd in reference to a disturbance. Officers made contact with Alexander Jennes Downing (35) of Waterford CT. While making contact with Alexander Jennes Downing officers determined that he was intoxicated in a public place and was a danger to himself and others. Alexander Jennes Downing was then placed under arrest for Public Intoxication,” the incident report read.
