A Mineral County man has been charged with assault of a minor for slamming a child to the ground during the national anthem at the Mineral County fairgrounds.

The 13-year-old boy was flown to Spokane after receiving temporal skull fractures in the incident that happened at the Mineral County Fairgorunds.

Brockway was arrested on Saturday night and made his initial court appearance on Monday in Mineral County.

The state requested his bond be set to $100,000, however the judge ruled Brockway can be released on his own recognizance. »
