The man seen in a viral video harassing a woman for wearing a Puerto Rican flag shirt has been charged with a hate crime.

Mia Irizarry sat down for an interview with Carlos Jimenez Flores, posted on the Puerto Rican Cultural Center's website, days after a man verbal berated her in a viral video.



Trybus was caught on camera last month verbally harassing Mia Irizarry in the Forest Preserves of Cook County in June. The video shows him approaching her, asking why she is wearing a v-neck Puerto Rican flag shirt with the words "Puerto Rico" written below the neckline.

Trybus is then seen asking her if she's an American saying, "Are you a citizen? Are you a United States citizen?"

Mia Irizarry took this video of a man she says harassed her for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag, saying it was un-American.



From behind the camera Irizarry can be heard begging him to stop.

Irizarry is heard telling Trybus that Puerto Rico is part of the United States as he approaches her multiple times.

"Are you a citizen of the United States," Trybus is heard asking.

"Can you please get away from me?" Irizarry responds.

Irizarry can be heard asking a park police officer for help, and telling him she is uncomfortable. The officer is seen walking away.

As Trybus continues to harass her other officers arrived and a female police officer finally steps in on behalf of Irizarry.

"I was genuinely fearful for what could happen to me," Irizarry said in an interview. "I really thought that I was going to end up being physically hit. No reaction or response from the cop."

The officer, identified by authorities as Patrick Connor, resigned Wednesdaynight. He was supposed to face a disciplinary hearing Thursday.
