Video shows landscaper running over Donald Trump sign with lawnmower

Orlando HOA says man banned from neighborhood

ORLANDO, Fla. – An HOA says a landscaper has been banned from working in an Orlando neighborhood after a Facebook video showed him running over a Donald Trump campaign sign with a lawnmower.

A resident of the Citrus Chase subdivision posted the video to Facebook, saying, "Look at what our landscapers did..... I understand people may not like Trump but I have my rights to put this sign in my yard and it was no accident see for yourself!"

The video, which is time-stamped April 19, shows the landscaper mowing over the sign before backing up, placing the sign flat on the grass and apparently running it over at least one more time.

The Chase Citrus HOA later replied to the man's Facebook post, writing, "The guy has been removed from the crew, he will not be allowed in our development any more."

Chase Citrus is located near State Road 435 and West Sand Lake Road, west of I-4.
