HOUSTON (AP) - The Latest on the driver of a pickup truck displaying a profane message opposing President Donald Trump and his supporters  

The woman who has been seen in the Houston area driving a pickup truck displaying an expletive-laden message opposing President Donald Trump and his supporters has been arrested.

Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office records show Karen Fonseca was arrested about 2 p.m. Thursday on an outstanding fraud warrant issued in August by the Rosenberg Police Department. She remained in the county jail Thursday night with bond set at $1,500.

A sheriff's spokesman has not answered a message seeking details behind the warrant.

Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls had threatened Fonseca with a disorderly conduct charge over the decal. However, District Attorney John Healey said he didn't think it would have been a prosecutable case.

The driver of a pickup displaying a profane message to President Donald Trump and his supporters in the Houston area says she won't remove the decal.

Karen Fonseca says she's been repeatedly stopped by law officers, but that they have no grounds to issue a citation.

Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls on Wednesday posted a photo of the truck message on Facebook alongside a request to speak with the driver. The post has since been removed.

Nehls said Wednesday that the message could cause offense and raised the possibility of a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. He later said he supports freedom of speech rights.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas posted on Facebook that Fonseca's message is protected speech and urged her to reach out to the organization.
