Man charged with hate crime for attacking a lesbian couple at the NFL match


Prosecutors charged the 34-year-old with second-degree assault and malicious harassment after he allegedly groped a woman and punched her wife in the face. The man, identified as Jay Dee Harp III in local media, was taken into custody with a $25,000 bail. He was bailed out the next day, but as more details of the attack were revealed the sum of the bail was increased 4 times. As reported in court documents quoted in local media, the man grabbed one of the women by her jacket, unzipping it and grabbing her breast. As she tried to push him off, he allegedly threw his beer in her face. As a state trooper was restraining him, the man once again opposed resistance and allegedly cursed at the official and punched him in the stomach. Officers then used a taser on the man, who was described as “highly intoxicated,” and proceeded to handcuff him.
