Prosecutors say Curt James Brockway attacked a 13-year-old boy because he did not take his hat off for the national anthem before a rodeo event in Montana.
James was charged with assault on Saturday after witnesses say he threw the child to the ground because he was “disrespecting the national anthem.”
Curt James Brockway, 39, was arrested at the Mineral County Fair and charged with assault on a minor.
Brockway said “he had every right to do that to anyone that doesn’t respect the anthem. The little boy was lying on the ground, bleeding out of his ears, seizing on the ground, just not coherent.”
