FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas – A Texas sheriff posted to his social media account a picture of an obscene bumper sticker regarding President Donald Trump.

Fort Bend County, Texas Sheriff Troy E. Nehls posted a picture of a GMC Sierra with a back window sticker, "F__k Tump and F__k you for voting for him." Alson with the picture, Nehls posted this:

"I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you. 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."

Nehls clarified in a comment about the Disorderly Conduct charge, citing Texas law, which states that a person commits an offense if he intentionally or knowingly:

(1) uses abusive, indecent, profane, or vulgar language in a public place, and the language by its very utterance tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace;

(2) makes an offensive gesture or display in a public place, and the gesture or display tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace;
