A San Franciso man has been charged with attempted murder, mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon following accusations that he slashed another man with a sword during a brawl over the assailant’s “Make America Great Again" Hat.

Leor Bergland, 30, was arrested Wednesday following a days-long police search in the city. The San Francisco Police Department said in a statement that officers had staked out the Bergland residence and devoted “round the clock” surveillance in an effort to arrest him.

The charges stem from a March 29 incident near the Church of 8 Wheels, a popular roller skating rink in the city's Western Addition neighborhood. After a verbal confrontation, the 27-year-old Berkeley victim had attempted to knock off Bergland’s pro-Trump hat when Bergland allegedly whipped out a hidden sword and sliced him, nearly severing his hand.

“The suspect drew a sword and cut the victim’s left hand before running from the scene,” police said. “The victim and a witness initially chased the suspect until he turned and began advancing towards them. They ended their pursuit and suspect fled the area.”

Bergland, who was reportedly identified by fingerprint evidence left on a beer bottle, appeared in court on Friday and did not issue a plea. A judge set bail at $250,000. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, he appeared “defiant" during the proceedings and at one point turned to his attorney and said, “I can defend myself."

David Miles, who founded the Church of 8 Wheels, told Newsweek he didn’t see the incident but ran outside to help the victim afterward.

Anybody silly enough to wear a "MAGA" hat should automatically be suspected of being of 'unsound mind'.

And having no fashion sense..
