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. â€œFuck you, niggers! Donâ€™t you see whatâ€™s on the front of my truck?â€ 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 coupleâ€™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.
