The Trump supporter who spit on a Black Lives Matter protester on camera during an argument has a big problem … he’s now a criminal defendant.
Prosecutors in Massachusetts charged Scott Marberblatt with assault and battery. An officer on duty at last month’s protest said he witnessed Marberblatt spitting and coughing on a BLM protester.
The alleged victim, Marcus Johnson, tells TMZ … he was with his mom, who was holding a BLM sign, when the guy started arguing with them that “all lives matter” … then suddenly, he was on the receiving end of the gross discharge.
Aside from the obvious, Marcus had a deeper concern — coronavirus. He says he couldn’t get a COVID test immediately after the incident, so he self-isolated for days. He says he was finally able to get a COVID test, which came back negative.
With a clean bill of health, Marcus says he plans on demonstrating in more BLM protests.
