The day after Republican Donald Trump was elected president, TheBlaze reported on vandalism in Philadelphia — spray-painted graffiti featuring swastikas, the Nazi salute "Sieg Heil," as well as the phrases "Trump Rules" and "Black Bitch."

Police arrested a New Jersey man in connection with one of the incidents.

William Tucker, 58, of Lawnside is accused of spray painting three vehicles — one with "Trump Rules" and "Black Bitch" — along with a house in the early morning hours of Nov. 9, Philly.com reported.

Turns out the woman who owns the white 2015 Nissan Armada SUV spray painted with "Trump Rules" and "Black Bitch" saw police surveillance video of the act and identified Tucker, saying he's an ex-boyfriend of eight years, Philly.com said, citing court documents. Both Tucker and the victim are black, the Associated Press said.

More from Philly.com:

Tucker is also accused of spray painting "Trump Rules" on the driver's side of a white 2016 Infiniti QX60 SUV, and on the side of a house on the 900 block of South Sixth Street. Lastly, he is charged with spray painting the letter "T" on the front hood of a white 2013 Lincoln MKX SUV.

Tucker is charged with four counts of criminal mischief and was released on his own recognizance the day of his arrest, Philly.com said, adding that his preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
