Fucheck was charged under Florida’s hate crime law. “All Mr. Wynn wanted to do was go into his mailbox for his mail. Suddenly, as the video shows, Mr. Fucheck accosted him with a barrage of ugly statements and racial slurs.” Rundle’s statement read. “After speaking with all the involved witnesses and reviewing the evidence, we are alleging that but for the fact that Mr. Wynn is a black male, the entire incident would not have occurred.” While Rundle’s office has said that Fucheck is a convicted felon, it has not been made clear what his prior crimes were.


Attempts to contact Fucheck by NBC News were unsuccessful. The real estate agency he was listed as working at basically said “we don’t claim him,” and denied that he worked there.
