A Donald Trump protester -- who happens to be black -- got knocked to his ass by a white Trump supporter, and now cops have arrested the attacker ... TMZ has learned.This is foul. This is bullshit.
The video from the Wednesday rally in Fayetteville, NC shows an unidentified supporter in a cowboy hat totally sucker punch a protester who was already being escorted out of the venue.
Officers, who observed the hit, reacted quickly, but slammed the protester down on the ground -- not the puncher.
We've learned police did not arrest the victim, but did kick him out of the event. As for the punching cowboy -- we've learned he's 78-year-old John McGraw, and he's currently in police custody. According to cops, McGraw voluntarily came in Thursday morning to be interviewed ... and that's when he was arrested.
You can disagree with the protester all you want but for some guy to punch him and then the protester gets arrested? Taken down by four Law Enforcement Officers?
THEY ONLY INVESTIGATE IT AFTER THE VIDEO MAKES IT ONTO SOCIAL MEDIA?
Is this white privilege?
I find this not only disturbing but aggravating. For an officer at a Trump rally to observe an assault, take part in the group dynamic and arrest the protester makes me question many of my beliefs.
