A Florida man with a Confederate flag sticker on his van, according to police, yelled a racial slur and slammed into a black couple in a dispute over a parking space.

38-year-old Donald Lee Hicks became incensed when he saw the couple standing in a parking spot trying to save it for a family member.

Hicks demanded the couple move from the spot, then pointed to the Confederate flag sticker on his van after they refused to budge. “Fuck you, niggers! Don’t you see what’s on the front of my truck?” he yelled.

He then drove his 1997 Dodge van into the couple, a 40-year-old man and 57-year-old woman, hitting them both in their knees.

One of those victims called the cops just before noon. Hicks was arrested moments later, while emergency responders treated the couple’s knee injuries.

He’s been charged with two counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and his bond has been set at $40,000.

He’s also been ordered not to have any contact with the victims.
