During a Donald Trump rally Wednesday night in Fayetteville, N.C., several black protesters were being escorted out of the building to boos and racial slurs when one Trump supporter walked into the path of one of the men and punched him in the face.

Plot twist: The victim—that's right, the one who has been assaulted—was then held down and handcuffed by security, but the attacker was never approached or detained.

Because? Well, Trump.

According to TMZ, 78-year-old John McGraw, who was later identified as the attacker, was arrested Thursday morning and is currently in police custody.
