Trump supporting gay basher avoids jail time after asking for a hug in court

A North Carolina man who attacked a gay couple in Key West, Florida, while shouting anti-gay slurs and telling them they were “in Trump country now,” has avoided jail time.

Brandon Ray Davis was drunkenly riding his scooter on February 23, and Kevin Seymour and Kevin Paul Taylor watched as he almost drove out into traffic. When Seymour called out to him, Davis turned violent.

Davis said the couple “probably voted for that bitch Hillary,” called them “faggots,” and followed them, before driving his scooter into Seymour’s rear bike tire, sending him flying.

Davis then told the men that if they called the police he would “cut that faggot body up.”

“I tried to save this man’s life,” Seymour told the judge. “He tried to end mine.”

In court, Davis sang a starkly different tune, instead asking for those bodies to hold him.

“My heart goes out to you guys, every bit of it,” Davis told Taylor and Seymour. “I’m asking you to come put your arms around me, take my hand.”

The couple sat quietly, denying him his request.

Assistant State Attorney Colleen Dunne had asked for 60 days in jail, but Judge Wayne Miller said no jail time was necessary.

Originally arrested for felony aggravated battery, Davis was allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge and was sentenced to four years probation and 75 hours of community service, a portion of which must be LGBTQ-related.

He is also banned from drinking alcohol for two years, must undergo both psychological and substance abuse evaluations, and is required to take anger management classes.
