Legal issues[edit]

On September 12, 2019, Coughman was arrested in Lawrenceville, Georgia and has been accused of attempting to stage a fake hate crime. Police responded to a call reporting a man damaging a restaurant and ice cream shop before fleeing in a truck with no license plates. Officers found signs of forced entry at the restaurant as well as graffiti on the walls and booths that included racial slurs, swastikas, and the phrase "MAGA." They pulled over the unmarked truck and found Coughman who they discovered owned the damaged businesses. The truck also contained multiple televisions that appeared to have been ripped off a wall.

Coughman claimed that he had noticed the damage earlier that day and had reported it to his insurance company but not law enforcement. The charges pending against Coughman include false reporting a burglary, insurance fraud, and concealing a license plate.[31]
