Later on Tuesday, Nevarez admitted that he “shoved around” Rinaldi. In Nevarez’s mind, this was justified.

“I did shove him around a little bit, I pushed him, because he needed to get out of there,” Nevarez said.

“I got in his face and I put my hands on the guy,” Nevarez also said. “In another exchange, I said, ‘we need to take this outside because it shouldn’t get resolved here in front of all these people.’”

Nevarez countered with a claim that his colleagues heard Rinaldi say he was “going to put a bullet” in Nevarez’s head. In Rinald’s statement he countered this by saying he would only use his gun in self defense.

Nevarez wasn’t done. He said, “He’s a racist. He’s a bad person. We’re not going to allow people like that to get away with saying comments like that because they think nothing’s gonna happen to ’em.”

He seems to think shoving someone the way he did was an acceptable action.
