Two Maryland teenagers accused of setting a "Make America Great Again" sign on fire now face hate crime charges.
Baltimore native D'Asia Perry and Joy Shuford of Owings Mills, both 19, were accused of setting fire to a sign in Princess Anne along Maryland's Eastern shore. The sign had been set on fire and stolen previously, The Baltimore Sun reports. The most recent burning on Friday morning dealt $800 worth of damages as it spread to nearby vegetation.
Jamie Wink, son of sign owner Robert Wink, said the Trump sign wasn't badly damaged, but an attached sign for Kathy Szeliga, who ran an unsuccessful Senate campaign, was melted in the fire.
A Princess Anne Police officer said the signs were "intentionally burned" due to the Winks' political and religious beliefs. The Wink family said the sign next to the family business, Wink's Sporting Goods, has become a minor tourist attraction as people pose for selfies.
