He recounted that after he greeted a male friend with a ‘hug and a kiss on the cheek’ and ‘putting [his] arm around [his friend],’ the defendants began yelling ‘faggots, faggots’ at him outside the window of their car. Garcia recalled then telling the two defendants in their car something akin to ‘you fucking assholes, you shouldn’t say shit like that here.'” Charges dropped against second defendant.
