A Nazi was punched outside of Richard Spencer's speech at University of Florida

Posted By on Thu, Oct 19, 2017 at 4:38 PM

While protesters gathered outside of white supremacist Richard Spencer's speech at University of Florida this afternoon, someone's fist connected with a Nazi's face.

The name of the mutton-chopped Nazi, or who threw the rogue punch, has yet to be released. However, the Nazi was immediately escorted off campus by a Sheriff's officer. 

No word on whether or not any charges have been filed. 

This is a breaking story, and we'll update when more information is available.
