His name is Curt James Brockway. He's 39 and he's accused of smashing a 13-year-old named Wally Crosby on the ground for 'disrespecting' the National Anthem, based on reports by Heavy and CBS. The kid suffered a fractured skull and was bleeding out of his ear for hours. Brockway's lawyer appeared to blame Trump, saying that Brockway was listening to his commander-in chief. "Curt Brockway’s defense attorney, Lance Jasper, told The Missoulian that his client is a U.S. Army veteran. He said Brockway was influenced by President Donald Trump’s “rhetoric” surrounding the national anthem.
“His commander in chief is telling people that if they kneel, they should be fired, or if they burn a flag, they should be punished,” Jasper told the newspaper. “He certainly didn’t understand it was a crime."
"The assault resulted in Wally sustaining temporal skull fractures. Temporal fractures occur on the side of the skull and can cause hearing loss, vertigo, balance disturbance, or facial paralysis. The teen was released from the hospital and is currently at home recovering from his injuries," as reported by Heavy.
