19-year-old Adwoa Lewis told police Friday a group of four teenagers yelled "Trump 2016!" and stated that she didn't belong here. Lewis also claimed that after she parked her car in front of her house, she woke up the next day to find slashed tires and a note that read, "Go Home." Police learned that this altercation did not take place, and police said Lewis admitted to writing the hateful note and placing it on her own car.
