Curt James Brockway, 39, of Montana, believing a 13-year old boy had been disrespectful by failing to remove his hat during the playing of the national anthem, struck the child, knocking him down, resulting in the child’s skull being fractured.

Brockman, a convicted felon, was arrested over the weekend for assault.

Taylor Hennick, a witness, was at the entrance of the Mineral County Fair and Rodeo when she heard what sounded like a “pop,” and, after looking around, she saw the boy.

“There was a little boy lying on the ground. He was bleeding out of his ears, seizing on the ground, just not coherent.”

As other witnesses moved toward Brockway, the man attempted to defend his actions by accusing the boy of disrespecting the national anthem. Hennick recounted:

“He said (the boy) was disrespecting the national anthem so he had every right to do that,”

The parents of the child told MTN News that his ears bled for nearly six hours after the attack and he suffered temporal skull fractures. The boy is now recovering at home.

Brockway is presently on probation for 10-years,  as a result of a 2010 charge of assault with a weapon. According to Montana Department of Justice records, he is registered as a violent offender, and is considered a dangerous individual.

Prosecutors asked that bail be set at $100,000, but Brockway was released on his own recognizance on Tuesday, August 6. Brockway’s arraignment is scheduled for August 14 with Judge John Larsen presiding.  Why he was released on his recognizance is beyond me given he was on probation, but the fact is there are far too many of these scumbags wandering about.  He should have been locked up.
