Christian author Eric Metaxas, writer of biographies of William Wilberforce and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, took it upon himself to punch a passing protester who was shouting “F— You, F— Trump” to participants who were leaving the Republican National Convention, and then ran away when confronted by the man he assaulted.
After the punch was thrown, the obstreperous victim confronted Metaxas, shouting:
You just attacked me bro, that’s a felony. You just attacked me bro, that’s a felony. You just attacked me bro, that’s a felony.
Harrington was quickly apprehended by law enforcement and pulled aside, but sought to explain to them that he was the victim, and not the other way around.
“Bro, I did not touch that man. Are you serious? I was utilizing my first amendment. I did not touch that man you guys. Seriously? Bro, that Dude punched me off my bike. That’s why my Bike’s in the street.”
There has been no comment yet from Metaxas and no charges have been filed at this time. According to an Instagram post by Harrington, he does not intend to press charges.
