SUPERIOR, Mont. (AP) — The Latest on an alleged attack over the national anthem (all times local):
Court documents say a man accused of assaulting a 13-year-old boy at a Montana rodeo told a sheriff’s deputy that the boy cursed at him when he asked the teenager to take off his hat during the national anthem.
The document filed by Mineral County Attorney Ellen Donohue charges 39-year-old Curt James Brockway of Superior, Montana, with assault on a minor.
It says Brockway told the deputy he asked the boy to take off his hat out of respect for the national anthem.
