The woman responsible for the “F–Trump” bumper sticker has been arrested for a previous outstanding warrant, according to Fort Bend County jail records.
Karen Fonseca was booked into the jail shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday for a fraud charge. Her bail is set at $1500, according to the Houston Chronicle.
If you’re just now tuning in, here’s the latest. First, the local Sheriff posted this:

The ACLU sent a tweet, instead.
Memo to @SheriffTNehls:
You can't prosecute speech just because it contains the word “fuck.”

Texas state law describes disorderly conduct as intentionally using “abusive, indecent, profane, or vulgar language in a public place, and the language by its very utterance tends to incite an immediate breach of peace.” The law also prohibits making “an offensive gesture or display in a public place” that could have the same effect.
Be that as it may, they found a way to get Ms. Fonseca but we have a feeling this isn’t over yet.
