A man has been arrested after he was videotaped yelling obscenities and racial insults to a Muslim family — including a number of small children — on a Texas beach.
The incident occurred on South Padre Island. Police said Alexander Jennes Downing, who is from Connecticut, faces a charge of public intoxication.
In the video, which was posted on YouTube, the man yells at the family "Donald Trump will stop you" and "You will never ever, ever, ever stop me," he tells the family. "My Christianity will rise above your Sharia law. Guess what? ISIS don't mean s--- to me, mother f----er."
He makes several gestures toward the family, including grabbing his genitals and using a lewd term. He also pounds his chest many times. The children on the beach with the family are between 2 and 4.
"First and foremost, we are Americans who happened to be Muslims," one of the family members told mySA.com. "Never have I ever experienced such a thing. We did not do anything to provoke him."
