A 79-year-old Donald Trump supporter who was caught on video sucker-punching a young protestor finally came face-to-face with the man earlier this week – and he was given the chance to apologize.

John Franklin McGraw was facing assault and battery charges after he hit Rakeem Jones in the face during a Fayetteville Trump rally in March. Rakeen was being escorted out by the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office when the attack took place.

Though the case carried on until July to continued investigation of McGraw, the sentencing took place yesterday in the Cumberland County courtroom. The senior was given one year of unsupervised probation.

McGraw apologized, said his attack was not racially motivated, and stated that he and Jones were unfortunately just caught up in a “political mess”.

“It just felt good being able to shake his hand…and face him,” Jones told WNCN.
