BIG PINE KEY (CBSMiami) – A California woman was arrested Friday for slashing a Donald Trump sign and threatening business owners with a knife.
The owners of R & T Vinyl Signs told Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputies that Elizabeth McSurdy, 30, slashed their vinyl “Trump” sign and made threats.
One of the men took a photo of her car as she left and authorities caught up with her soon after.
McSurdy eventually told deputies she slashed the sign because it “ruined her chill,” after she was confronted with the photo evidence.
She also admitted to holding the knife during the confrontation but denied threatening anyone.
The knife was found by authorities in the glove department of her car.
She was charged with Criminal Mischief and Aggravated Assault.
