Man Charged With Hate Crime After Racist Tirade Against Woman Wearing Puerto Rico Shirt

A man who was filmed yelling and getting in the face of a woman for wearing a shirt with Puerto Rico's flag has been charged with a felony hate crime.

Timothy Trybus, 62, berated 24-year-old Mia Irizarry in June while she was setting up for a birthday party in a Chicago park and wearing the shirt.

Irizarry asks Trybus to leave her alone and then asks nearby Cook County Forest Preserves Officer Patrick Connor for help, but he ignores her plea.
