The symbol of the popular protest against President Donald Trump floated among the crowds of college football fans in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Saturday when he was attacked by a man, an event organizer told CNN.
At approximately 2:30 pm ET, before the coup d'etat from Alabama and the state of Louisiana, a stranger approached the balloon and stabbed it, according to Nic Gulas, one of the organizers of the presentation of the ball "Baby Trump" to the game. The balloon deflated after the injury, Gulas said.
"It was a random guy who ran to the balloon, stuck a knife and ran away, we had police nearby because of another driver earlier, so they went and stopped his driver and driver on the run, "Gulas told CNN via Twitter.
CNN solicited comments from the Tuscaloosa Police Department. The reason for the balloon attack is unknown.
Before the match, Gulas told CNN that the ball could be found at the corner of Hackberry Lane and 15th Street.
"So, the atmosphere is good, honestly put a lot of protesters in front of you, from time to time a car will shout," Trump 2020! "or" Keep America Great! ", but it's mostly positive," Gulas told CNN via Twitter.
