The teenager who had his “Make America Great Again” hat stolen during a confrontation at a Whataburger in Texas has reportedly had it returned.

Joe Galli, a reporter for News 4 San Antonio, a local television news station, reports that the teenager had his hat returned to him by the San Antonio Police Department.

The video of the incident caused several conservative personalities to lash out against the fast food chain, and lamented the “harassment” against right-wing supporters in recent weeks.

The Whataburger incident came as several members of President Donald Trump‘s administration—and other prominent Republicans like Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell—have been confronted in public.

The man who accosted the teenager, Kino Jimenez, was arrested late last week and charged with theft.

The fast food chain condemned the incident, adding that it doesn’t “condone this type of customer behavior in our restaurants.”
