The co-founder for Students for Trump was arrested and charged for assaulting his girlfriend last Tuesday, according to court documents.
Ryan Fournier, 27, co-founded Students for Trump while studying at Campbell University in 2016. He now leads conservative activist group Radical Alert, which he claims “exposes” radicals’ hate that has “taken over American college campuses,” according to Axios, which also broke the news of Fournier’s arrest.
Fournier allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by her right arm and hit her in the head with a handgun, according to court documents. He was charged with assault of a woman and assault with a deadly weapon after the incident.
He posted $2,500 bond later that evening and was released. Fournier’s next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 18.
Fournier’s arrest comes after fellow Students for Trump co-founder John Lambert, was sentenced to 13 months in prison for posing as a lawyer in May 2021.
