(Newser) – There are people who love President Trump, there are people who don't love President Trump, and then there are the kind of people who decide to protest President Trump by attacking a statue of a bull with what was apparently some kind of a musical instrument. Tevon Varlack, who is 42 and of Dallas, stands charged with criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, and criminal possession of a weapon, reports the AP. The Dallas Morning News adds that its hometown boy apparently charged the Charging Bull statue on Wall Street on Saturday while screaming "F--- Donald Trump!" and wielding what was variously reported to be a banjo or a guitar. The musical instrument left a hole in the right horn of the beast, notes the AP. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
