The Pensacola News Journal reports:
A Pensacola man has been arrested for allegedly pulling off a woman’s face mask during a weekend rally in downtown Pensacola in support of President Donald Trump.
Dan Orval Ditto Jr., 58, was arrested about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday and charged with simple battery, according to Pensacola Police Department spokesman Mike Wood.
“He grabbed her mask — her COVID-19 mask — and pulled it off her face,” Wood told the News Journal. “That’s battery. You can’t do that.” The incident occurred about 3 p.m. Sunday at the “Stop the Steal” rally at Plaza Ferdinand VII park.
