A Donald Trump supporter was stabbed in the throat at a Pasco, Wash., bar after an argument about the president-elect's proposed policies resulted in the Trump supporter calling another man a racial slur.
According to the Tri-City Herald, Raymond Williams, 29, of Richland, Wash., was arguing with Alvaro Campos-Hernandez, 40, of Pasco, Wash., about the president-elect. Williams, who, according to the report, was in favor of Trump as well as highly intoxicated, got into a full-on yelling match with Campos-Hernandez, witnesses told the paper.
The two men were separated, but then Williams reportedly called Campos-Hernandez a racial slur.
"Campos went back and grabbed Williams and was yelling, 'Say it again’ repeatedly," Pasco Police Sgt. Scott Warren told the newspaper.
According to authorities, Campos put Williams in a headlock and held a knife to his throat, with Williams pulling his own knife in self-defense, but unsuccessfully.
Williams suffered a 1-inch wound to his windpipe, according to the newspaper.
"It could have been a homicide. The victim was extremely lucky," said Warren.
Campos-Hernandez was arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault and booked into the Franklin County Jail.
