New Jersey Man Ticketed for Flying Donald Trump Flags

New Jersey Man Ticketed for Flying Donald Trump Flags

Saturday, 09 April 2016 11:34 AM EDT

A New Jersey man is facing a fine for flying flags that support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Joseph Hornick thought West Long Branch police were responding to his reports that the flags proclaiming "Trump Make America Great Again" had been vandalized. Instead, he was ticketed for violating an ordinance that restricts the display of political signs.

Acting borough administrator Lori Cole says the ordinance prohibits the display of political signs until 30 days prior to an election. New Jersey's primary is June 7.

Violators face a minimum fine of $100. The maximum penalty is a fine of $2,000, 90 days in jail or both.

Hornick says he intends to keep flying the flags. His court date is April 20.

Cole would not comment on Hornick's summons.
