On Thursday, Karen Fonseca, the woman with the “Fuck Trump” sticker on her truck was arrested.
She was picked up for an outstanding warrant from August.
According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, they arrested her after they were tipped off about her warrant. Some suspect this was a result of the sticker.
On Wednesday, she made headlines after Sheriff Nehls threatened to arrest her for her “Fuck Trump and fuck you for voting for him” sticker on the back of her pickup truck.
She says that she and her husband had the sticker for almost a year.
The sheriff posted on his Facebook of her truck stating, “I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you.” It continued, “Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it.”

However, after the story went viral and thousands came to her defense, Nehls deleted the post.
On Thursday, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office stated, “The objective of the post was to find the owner/driver of the truck and have a conversation with them in order to prevent a potential altercation between the truck driver and those offended by the message. Since the owner of the truck has been identified, the Sheriff took down the post.”
According to the Fort Bend County District Attorney, they revealed they do not have plans on filing charges for her sticker.
Fonseca says she has no regrets.
She stated, “It’s hard to believe that a simple sticker could cause so much arousal. I have no regrets.”
