A Mineral County man who's charged with assault of a minor for slamming a child to the ground during the national anthem in Superior entered a not guilty plea on Wednesday morning.
Witnesses had previously told MTN News that Curt Brockway grabbed, picked up and slammed a 13-year-old boy to the ground because he did not remove his hat during the national anthem at the Mineral County Fairgrounds.
The child was flown to Spokane after receiving temporal skull fractures in the incident and is back home recovering.
Brockway was arrested on Aug. 3 and made his initial court appearance on Aug. 5 in Mineral County.
The state had requested his bond be set to $100,000, however the judge ruled Brockway can be released on his own recognizance.
This is not Brockway’s first run in with police. He pleaded guilty to an assault with a weapon charge that occurred in 2011.
We will full coverage of Wednesday's hearing during the 5:30 News.
