How far is too far when it comes to stopping someone spreading hate speech? Hitting them over the head with a baseball bat, apparently. Controversial street preacher Brother Dean Saxton spends his days denouncing homosexuality and holding signs telling women they deserve rape for not being true Christians. A while ago, Brother Dean posted a YouTube video of his demonstration at Apollo High School. There, he used a megaphone to tell students they’re going to hell. A couple of minutes into the video, you can hear him being hit from behind. Brother Dean was able to walk away but he was bleeding from a gash on his head.

The assault itself was not filmed nor was the alleged attacker. Several weeks later, however, Tabitha Brubaker, 19, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. In her statement to police, she “advised that she had no involvement with the incident.” In spite of that, Brubaker was held on a $10,000 bond at the MCSO 4th Ave Jail facility for more than a week.
