The El Paso District Attorney’s office will not press charges against the belligerent Trump supporter who apparently shoved several news crews and “violently pushed” a BBC cameraman during the president’s Monday evening rally near the border.

In video captured of the incident, the screaming Trump supporter, wearing a red Make America Great Again hat, purportedly shoved BBC cameraman Ron Skeans off-balance before being restrained and removed by security, while screaming “Fuck the media.”

“We are looking into the situation and the released video of the incident but we are not pressing charges at this time,” District Attorney Jaime Esparza told The Daily Beast on Tuesday. “If there are any changes to our course of action, we will inform the public.”
