Breaking tonight, according to CNN:
“A North Carolina sheriff’s office is weighing charges of inciting a riot against Donald Trump or his campaign stemming from a Trump supporter’s alleged assault against a protester during a rally last week.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Monday its investigation “is not complete” and that it is probing “the potential of whether there was conduct on the part of Mr. Trump or the Trump campaign which rose to the level of inciting a riot.”

“Our investigation is not complete as to the incidents of Wednesday, March 9, 2016,” the Sheriff’s office said in a statement, referring to the date of Trump’s rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Police arrested 78-year-old John McGraw and charged him with assault on protester Rakeem Jones after multiple videos surfaced online showing McGraw attempting to punch Jones, hitting him in the face with his elbow.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is also weighing additional charges against McGraw, after they already added an additional charge of communicating threats. That came after an “Inside Edition” report showed McGraw threatening to kill Jones the “next time.”

Cumberland County Sheriff Earl R. Butler, first elected in 1994, is a registered Democrat, according to his official biography.”

  1. So one guy punching another is now a “Riot”! Does that make Ferguson, or your average street corner of Chicago a Holocaust?

  2. REMEMBER THE ERIC CLAPTON SONG” I SHOT THE SHERIFF I DID NOT SHOOT THE DEPUTY SHERIFF JOHN BROWN WAS AIMING TO SHOOT ME DOWN, I SHOT THE SHERIFF, BUT I DID NOT SHOOT THE DEPUTY.. THIS NORTH CAROLINA LIBERAL SHERIFF IS LIKE BARNEY FIFE.

  3. Wtf! Mr. Sheriff has been drinking too much. One man punched another man. That’s it! No riot!
    Two men responsible for their own actions! Dumb ass. I do believe it’s up to a prosecutor to decide that anyway not a sheriff. So the sheriff really just wants to find a way to call it a riot and charge him.

  4. The Sheriff is looking for headlines and pandering. Unless Trump had shouted out immediately before the assault, “Punch that guy!”, there is absolutely NO BASIS in law for any Sheriff’s investigation. The Sheriff would do well to expend his tax dollars on actually serving the public rather than serving “the usual suspects.”
