That’s Gabriel Urena holding the sign. According to Alicia Hessler, Urena attacked her last Saturday night and she duly filed a police report against her alleged attacker.
However, the alleged victim did not think that a collar from the police would deter him from doing it again, so Hessler told Urena was told that she would not press charges if he held a sign in public for eight hours that said, “I beat women. Honk if I’m a scumbag”... which he did.

The pair met over the weekend in Florida and enjoyed an evening together with friends. Yet at the end of the evening Urena started groping Hessler in a car. When she told him to stop, he refused… then allegedly started punching her, leaving Hessler with a broken nose and concussion. She was later hospitalised for treatment.
After contacting the police, Hessler decided to contact her alleged attacker via Facebook, detailing her bargain – that he had to stand on a street corner for eight hours with a dunce’s cap and the sign.
He later posted the above picture on his Facebook page.
