Trump supporter's 'obvious parody' ends with his arrest

The man was wearing a mask and waving what passersby thought was a knife.

A South Shore man was arrested Wednesday after drivers reported seeing him standing along Route 139 wearing a mask, holding a Hillary Clinton sign and waving what was later identified as a plastic knife.

The man, Joe Pecevich, is a Donald Trump supporter, according to WBZ. He told the station that he was "expressing his opinion that Hillary Clinton is soft on terrorism."

Pembroke police said whenever someone appears to have a weapon, they must respond. Officers had to repeatedlytell Pecevichto drop the knife, which was found to be a plastic toy, WBZ reported.
Pecevich called his actions "an obvious parody." Hewas charged with disorderly conduct.
