VIDEO: Trump protester sucker-punched while being removed from event

- A Donald Trump supporter is facing charges after he is caught on video punching a protester at a Trump rally in North Carolina earlier this week.

The incident surfaced on social media yesterday morning.

Several people at the rally recorded protester Rakeem Jones being sucker-punched while being removed from the rally. Police then pushed Jones to the ground and detained him.

Afterwards, Inside Edition caught up with 78 year old John McGraw who threw the punch...they posted their exclusive interview with him, and that as you might expect – the video has gone viral.

McGraw was never even questioned by police and left the venue after the event.

People recognized him from the footage and he was arrested later on.

He's been charged with assault and communicating threats because of that Inside Edition interview.
