When the man called the woman out on "destroying" people's property, she pushed back, saying:
"I didn't destroy it. It said 'Flush Trump'—it said flush the turd."
The man then repeatedly stated that is "free speech" while the woman insisted "that's disrespecting the current president, sir."

@mrsjulieholt @AFiroz51 I wonder why she gets away with it.. hmmmmmm.— Sleepy Congressman NY-18 (@Sleepy Congressman NY-18)1606188958.0
When the police arrived, the woman had already removed the paper covering her license plate and only showed the officers a sign that was reportedly removed from a public street median.
Police filed no charges against either party.
But the man who filmed the woman, Demetrius Haynes, was unanimously voted off of the local Police Department Citizen's Advisory Board for his role in the viral video.

Watch out, Karens of the world.
You might not see any consequences for your bad behavior from local law enforcement, but Twitter will always be there to hold you to task.
