Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls says several complaints prompted him to post a picture of a truck with obscene remarks about President Donald Trump and the voters who supported him. The post included a photo of the white pickup truck with the bumper sticker. "Our prosecutor has informed us she would accept disorderly conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it", he wrote.

Mike and Karen Fonseca own the vehicle and are surprised the decal, which has been on the truck for 11 months, is all of a sudden the subject of so much attention.

Fonseca said that she has no plans to remove the sticker, even though people sometimes shake their head at it and officers have pulled her over before realizing they had no concrete reasons for writing her a ticket.

KTRK reports Nehls said during a news conference that he had no regrets about the Facebook post.

On Twitter, users debated the fate of the sticker. She said it is not intended "to cause hate or animosity".

Others said they didn't want their children forced to see profanity on the road.

A disorderly conduct charge targets a person who intentionally " uses abusive indecent, profane, or vulgar language in a public place" or "makes an offensive gesture or display in a public place" that "tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace".

"I drive it all the time on a daily basis", Forsenca said, adding that she shares the truck with her husband. "They smile. They stop you", said Fonseca. "No Sheriff Nehls, you can't prosecute speech just because it contains words you don't like", ACLU said.

The Texas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union offered to help Fonseca - and provided Nehls with a "Constitutional Law 101" lesson: "You can't ban speech just because it has [expletive] in it".

In Fort Bend County, located southwest of Houston, Hillary Clinton won the majority of the vote in last year's presidential election, with 51 percent versus 45 percent for Trump.

"There's no law against freedom of speech, nothing in the law book here in Texas", she told KHOU-TV in Houston.

So far, he hasn't received almost as much help finding the owner as he has comments about free speech, the First Amendment, negative decals from the past that had no legal consequences, drinking the Kool-Aid, and suggestions on what law enforcement could be working on instead.
