WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita gas station clash in which authorities say racial slurs and the names of presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders were shouted has led to misdemeanor charges.

Joseph Bryan, a white 33-year-old, and Christian Saldana-Banuelos, a 19-year-old Hispanic student at Wichita State University, face charges that include disorderly conduct. Warrants were issued Friday, but police said they hadn’t been arrested as of Wednesday. Neither had listed phone numbers or attorneys.

Saldana-Banuelos and Wichita State’s Muslim student body vice president alleged that a man identified as Bryan called a black person a racial slur before the clash ensued.

Saldana-Banuelos is accused of provoking Bryan by shouting Sanders’ name and asking if the two of them were going to fight. The college students said Bryan rode away on a motorcycle after shouting Trump’s name.
