A woman is reportedly facing deportation after she allegedly grabbed a man’s MAGA hat and threw it on the floor in a moment captured on video. 

Bryton Turner, 23, was out with friends “dinner and drinks” when a woman, who has been identified as Rosiane Santos, allegedly started yelling at him and ripped his hat off and threw it on the floor of a Mexican restaurant in Massachusetts. 

In the video, the woman can be seen grabbing Turner’s hat. Santos, who is a Brazilian citizen, was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement after the incident and is facing charges of disorderly conduct and assault and battery, as well as possible deportation.

"She has since been released from ICE custody after being entered into removal proceedings in federal immigration court and provided a Notice to Appear at a future date before an immigration court,” an ICE spokesperson told ABC News.

In a video of the moment, Turner says, "I'm just trying to sit here and eat a nice meal."

He adds: "You see this? 

Santos can be seen talking to police after the incident. Turner wrote on Facebook that he wasn’t going to press charges but “in front of four cops she did it again and now she’s going to jail.”

The video has been shared nearly 1,000 times. 

"I took the video to try to get the woman to leave me alone. I never wanted the attention although I think it’s deserved," he told ABC News. "Just because you don’t agree with someone doesn’t mean you act the way this woman did on that night. I think there’s a serious attack on our First Amendment rights these days coming from both sides of the political spectrum."

Turner declined to comment further to InsideEdition.com.

Santos’ attorney Katarina Kozakova could not be reached for comment, but she told Boston.com that Santos is married to a U.S. citizen and is awaiting green card approval.
