Head of NC “Students for Trump” arrested for assault

The North Carolina-based Students for Trump co-founder Ryan Fournier is facing misdemeanor assault charges, law enforcement records obtained by Axios show.

Context: Fournier, who studied at Campbell University in Buies Creek, co-founded Students for Trump ahead of the 2016 election and now leads the group Radical Alert, which “exposes” radicals’ hate that has “taken over American college campuses,” according to its X bio.

Driving the news: According to the magistrate’s order, Fournier, 27, was arrested in Johnston County last Tuesday and accused of assaulting the woman, identified as his girlfriend, by “grabbing her right arm and striking her in the forehead” with a handgun.

He was charged with domestic assault on a female and assault with a deadly weapon.
