At a time when wearing a mask is the underlying principle of all precautions against Covid-19, there has been a pushback against the simple face covering in many places. In such an incident, which has now gone viral on social media, a man was arrested after he attacked a Puerto Rico National Guard soldier who told him to wear a mask.

Several videos of the bizarre incident were shared by journalist David Begnaud. “A man who arrived in Puerto Rico on a flight from the U.S., yesterday, attacked a P.R. National Guard soldier who twice told him to put on a mask at the baggage claim in San Juan,” he tweeted. The man also refused to fill out mandatory travel declaration forms, Begnaud added.
