A man who was tossed out of a Crossgates Mall video store for wearing a T- shirt with a Nazi swastika is now facing criminal charges.
Marcus Nakao is charged with misdemeanor assault after he beat up a 70-year-old man who has a possible broken nose and other facial injuries. The man was known to Nakao.
Last weekend, the owner of Jay Street Video in Crossgates Mall published a photo of a man wearing a swastika T-shirt with a post saying he refused to sell him a comic book, that went viral with some people supporting the owner and others saying that Nakao had the right to wear the T shirt.
A relative claims Nakao has had mental health issues.
