Not surprisingly, the argument, and ensuing stabbing, took place in a bar, police say.
PASCO — A Richland man was stabbed during an argument authorities say involved the politics of President-elect Donald Trump.
The Tri-City Herald reports that a 29-year-old Trump supporter and 40-year-old Alvaro Campos-Hernandez were arguing Wednesday night in a Pasco bar. Pasco police say Campos-Hernandez walked away until the younger man allegedly called him a racial slur.
Police say Campos-Hernandez placed the man in a headlock and stabbed him in the windpipe. The man was taken to a hospital, where he is recovering from the wound.
Police say Campos-Hernandez was arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault and booked into the Franklin County Jail.
