Man Who Attacked Teen During National Anthem Says He Was Following Trump’s Orders

The Montana man who assaulted a teen for not taking off his hat during the national anthem says he was following President Donald Trump’s orders.

According to USA Today, Curt Brockway’s attorney, Lane Jasper, said in a statement that his client only attacked the boy because it was what President Trump would want from citizens in the United States. Jasper added that the U.S. Army veteran was caught up in the political tensions surrounding the country and believed he was following Trump’s commands.

“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”

Brockway also believed that assaulting the boy was not a crime and did not understand why he was punished for it.

Jasper said he is seeking a mental health evaluation for his client since he suffered a traumatic brain injury from a car accident in 2000 and the injuries have affected his decision making.

Brockway was charged with assault on a minor and faces a five-year prison sentence if convicted for the crime.
