A thirteen-year-old boy was allegedly assaulted on Saturday at the Mineral County fairgrounds by a man who claimed he was disrespecting the national anthem, KPAX reported.
Curt James Brockway was arrested by Mineral County Sheriff’s deputies Saturday evening, and a judge ordered him to be released of his own recognizance on Monday. Brockway was released from Sanders County jail Tuesday afternoon.
Taylor Hennick, who was at the fair, told the Missoulian she heard a “pop.”
“There was a little boy lying on the ground,” Hennick said. “He was bleeding out of his ears, seizing on the ground, just not coherent.”
The teen was flown to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital, Mineral County Sheriff Mike Boone told the Missoulian.
KPAX reported the boy returned to Montana to heal on Monday.
