A Texas woman with anti-Trump sticker on her truck said she may file a civil rights lawsuit against the sheriff.

Fonseca's trouble with Nehls all started last week when a picture of the vehicle - which technically belongs to her husband, but which she clearly sometimes drives - went viral after the Sheriff posted it to his Facebook page. "It's just our freedom of speech and we're exercising it", Ms Fonesca said in theaftermath of her arrest.

Fort Bend County District Attorney John Healey told the New York Post that the sticker does not meet the "elements of the crime of disorderly conduct". His post noted that the county prosecutor was considering charging the truck's owner with disorderly conduct.

His threat raised alarm among free speech advocates - and caused the Republican sheriff to retreat: The Facebook post was gone by Thursday, and the sheriff said he was done talking about the matter after receiving hateful messages.

The new addition comes after Fonseca was arrested on a fraud charge last Thursday and had her bail set at $1,500.

Fonseca and Texas State Representative Ron Reynolds will be holding a press conference later this morning to "discuss the injustice" at the Fort Bend County Justice Center, according to Houston-area NBC affiliate KPRC. Fonseca is accusing Nehls of violating her civil rights for political gain.

"I'm nearly certain it does have to do with this", she said after being released on a $1,500 bond. "When you're in politics, people know how to work the system".

Her attorney questioned the sheriff's Facebook post, which has since been deleted. A spokesperson for the Rosenberg Police Department, which issued the warrant, said it had not been in touch with the sheriff's office. "So anyone who has a sticker like this is within their rights under the US Constitution".

But murkier still are the consequences of that speech.

"It is protected speech", he said.

"I never chose to be in the news at all", said Fonseca.

Fonseca also spent some time at the news conference addressing critics' claims that the expletive-riddled sign was in poor taste. "Most of these children have seen it way before they saw it on the back of a truck".

A woman was sacked from her job at a government contracting firm for violating the "code of conduct policy" in October after an image of her trailing President Trump's motorcade on her bike to give him the middle finger went viral.

It now reads: 'F**k Trump and f**k you for voting for him. "Grab them by the p-y".

He was elected to the presidency the following month.
