This past summer LoSchiavo was the victim of a rock throwing incident in Montclair on Bloomfield Ave. At the time, his wife was a passenger. and "we were out for a drive, like teenagers." When they approached the intersection near the Shell station. A group of kids started yelling "F**k Trump and threw a rock that hit the passenger side door panel. A report of that incident was made to the Montclair police department.

The truck is well known in the township as it has numerous Trump supports signs. The truck also sports flags supporting Trump, the American Flag, and the flags of various branches of the military. LoSchiavo explained that this support for Trump grew out of his frustrations that "politicians get in there and don't do anything." 

LoSchiavo has been the subject of critical posts in Blooomfield facebook groups. He believes that those statements may have led to some of the anger that has been directed toward him.Other members of the community have come out with offers smalll cash donations to help the father of nine get new tires.
