A Central Florida high school student got so mad about a Donald Trump sign that he punched one of his classmates in the face and then repeatedly cursed at and fought with school officials, according to the Palm Bay Police Department.

The incident began Wednesday afternoon when Andre Hudson, a 17-year-old Bayside High School student, got into an argument with a classmate who was holding a Trump sign during gym class. Tensions escalated and Hudson punched his peer in the side of the face, police said.

Hudson was taken to the dean’s office. When a school resource officer arrived he was visibly agitated and swearing at school officials, according to an affidavit.

The officer tried to de-escalate the situation, but Hudson stuck his middle finger in the officer’s face, paced around the room and began punching filing cabinets and knocking things off the desk, police said.

“When I see that white boy again, I’m going to punch him in his face,” Hudson said, according to the report.
